Since 1964 UMOM New Day Centers has been dedicated to helping homeless families and individuals in need of life’s basic necessities.  UMOM is the largest homeless shelter for civilian and through a partnership with the VA, military families in Arizona and one of only 15 non-profit agencies in Arizona to receive national accreditation. UMOM services more than 3,000 homeless individuals annually.  Paradise Republican Women’s Club partnered with UMOM in 2002. Each month a wish list of various necessities is received, a basket is passed at the General Meetings and whoever wishes to donate money does so for the month's purchases.

Dear Ladies,                                                                              January, 2015

 

Hope all your Holiday celebrations were joyful and a very Happy New Year to every one of you!!!

 

Linda Weinberger and I delivered our PRWC Adopt a Veteran Family gifts, along with a special guest, to UMOM on December 18th.

 

Barbara McMullen won Ronnie the Bear at our PRWC Christmas Party and donated him to the UMOM children. We brought Ronnie with us and took him over to the Daycare Center. Needless to say he made quite a splash. The little ones came running and began to hug and touch him, every child wanted to hold him. Ronnie is of course larger than any of the children and after a while one of the daycare helpers had to rescue him. Then they all wanted to thank us with hugs and kisses, it was a very special and heartwarming experience. I wish we could have taken photos of the kids and the bear, sadly we are not allowed. We could only take a picture of Ronnie, the bear, on the slide in the play yard.

 

I am so pleased that the members of PRWC choose to thank our military families at Christmas, they sacrifice so much to keep our nation safe. We adopted two veteran families this year, the Hearon family of four, Mom Dad and two girls, ages 3 and 11 and the Tate family single Mom with one daughter age 4.

 

We had some funds left over in our PRWC/UMOM account and found out that Day Care was in desperate need of tricycles. So... yes you guessed it; two new trikes will be delivered to UMOM the first week of January.

 

I am attaching some photos. We were also able to take a photo of the 50 Year UMOM Legacy Wall. You will see the PRWC logo tile on the wall.

 

Thank you all so much for making my job as Caring for America Chair such a joy.

 

God Bless You,

Anthea Dyer
