A Special Thank You for a Community Leader

A special thank you to TD Bank Vice President and Ridgewood Store Manager, Jim Konzel, for his donation of toys to a participant in our Mentoring Moms program.   Georgia Brown has run a fully licensed, state certified day care program in her Englewood home for the past 4 ½ years and  is in the midst of renovating her home to build her business.  She carefully utilizes donations from people in the community so she can keep her rates affordable and help meet the child care needs of more families.  
 Jim graciously donated bags of his children's own gently used toys  to Tots Haven, Georgia's in-home day care center. Georgia, a long term Mentoring Moms participant, came to the program from the county’s Temporary Aide for Needy Families program.  A single mom to her three children and grandson, she continues her path to become more self-sufficient.
Mentoring Moms provides an informal network of support to mothers who have limited resources and struggle financially, logistically and emotionally with raising their families. For information about becoming a mentor, call the Volunteer Center at 201-489-9454.
