ParentLink hosting ‘Mom to Mom’ sale fundraiser at LMC

Parents are going to be able to save some money on baby and kids’ items at the Lacombe ParentLink Mom to Mom sale and fundraiser event.

Lacombe parents are going to be able to save some money on baby and kids’ items at the Lacombe ParentLink Mom to Mom sale and fundraiser event.

The event will take place in the Servus Room at the Lacombe Memorial Centre on May 9th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vendors will be selling new and lightly used toys, books, nursing items and other various parenting items.

“The Mom-to-Mom sale is basically a sale where people can get together and sell items that are for young families, for children zero to 5. We are going to be in the Servus room at the Lacombe Memorial Centre and the idea is that there will be 14 tables of different items in one room that are all for young families,” said Cora Hoekstra, program coordinator for the Lacombe ParentLink Centre.

“That also includes things for nursing parents and people that are anticipating having a child. You’ll find strollers, clothing, books and toys – anything that they might need to help them in raising their children.”

The sale will also have baby equipment such as strollers and carriers, maternity and nursing wear, as well as a variety of home-business vendors and their wares.

All of the money raised from the event will go towards enhancing current ParentLink programs, such as playgroups, nutrition information courses and education and information programs for new parents.

Every program at ParentLink is free, so fundraisers like the Mom-to-Mom sale are essential to delivering high quality programs for families with young children.

“Lacombe ParentLink Centre is a community program to support young children. We do receive some funding, but as with all things, we grow faster than our funding does. We have received some increases in funding, but FCSS groups across the province haven’t seen an increase in funding in a long time,” Hoekstra said.

“Generally, ParentLink programs are well-funded, but in order to fund extra programs and to meet the needs of a population that keeps growing, it is nice to have fundraisers like the Mom-to-Mom sale.”

Hoekstra added the Lacombe ParentLink Centre serves over 350 families in the Lacombe area. They provide services that aim to assist families expecting or who have children ages zero to five.

Lacombe ParentLink Centre offers drop-in programs several days a week, with all dates and information of programming available online at www.centralparklandparentlink.ca.
