Annual Swag Bag Party

Rants from Mommyland is working with The Duffy House to throw its annual Mother's Day party to help women in need.

On Saturday, May 5th at Burke United Methodist Church, we'll get together to create Mother's Day gift bags for women living in domestic violence and homeless shelters in our community. In years past, we've been able to create hundreds of gift bags filled with much-needed supplies for women from 4 shelters, just in time for Mother's Day: The Patrick Henry Family Shelter, The Katherine K. Hanley Family Shelter, Duffy House and the Artemis House.

On the day of the event, we'll be collecting and sorting donations from 1:00-2:00pm. From 2:00-3:00pm, we'll be stuffing and organizing gift bags. There will be fun activities for kids throughout, including a chance for them to donate to the kids at the shelter. Then from 3:00pm - 4:00pm clean up. We'll be adding more information as we get closer to the date!

Thank you so much for your support! See you there!

Date: 05/5/2018 (Sat.)
Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm EDT
Location: Burke United Methodist Church 6200 Burke Centre Parkway Burke, VA 22012


8th Annual Santa's Secret Workshop Recap

Thank you for your generous and compassionate support for this popular event. We couldn't have done it without the tireless efforts of a host of dedicated volunteers and generous sponsors. We had a wonderful turnout and lots of happy children!

Here's a short video from this year's special day:

The Workshop is designed to allow survivor children to "buy" Christmas gifts for their families and extended families at no cost to them.

The Workshop is a children-only place, and kids are assisted by volunteer Santa's Helpers to find just the right gifts. The Workshop shelves are stocked with donated items, or items purchased with donated funds. Gift-wrapping is also provided at no cost to participants.

In addition to shopping for holiday gifts, children can decorate cookies, write letters to Santa, and make cards for soldiers.
