UltimateMama believes the best way to teach children to give back to their community is to make them understand what it means to donate to those in need.  Right now, UltimateMama and her family are gathering clothing to take to their church to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.  This is a “teachable moment” as the kids can also help package the clothing up and personally deliver the items to the church.  For all of you in the NYC area, please drop off clothing of any size, gender, men/women/teen/children/babies to the Parish House of the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola at 980 Park Avenue at East 84th Street from 9 AM until 5 PM on Sunday, November 4th; Monday, November 5th; and Tuesday, November 6th, 2012. 

All clothing donations will go to NYC’s Metropolitan Hospital on First Avenue and East 97th Street as the hospital is in desperate need of clothing after many patients from New York City’s Bellevue Hospital Center were evacuated during Hurricane Sandy and sent to other local hospitals, including Metropolitan. 

Make this a family effort to help others who really need clothing NOW!  Your children will get satisfaction when you explain to them that they can help other children and babies as well as adults with an act of kindness and generosity.
