MOPS SHOPPING SPREE
MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers.
They believe that incubating hearts and giving can change the course of history. That’s why they connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find their identity by journeying along side one another.
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers.
The LifeSavers Foundation supports MOPS including this recent shopping spree for young mothers.
