Our group provides many different opportunities to help other families in our community. Some examples are below.

The Malvern Public Library, used by everyone in our club and community, has a children's room that is in need of a face lift. Our club has been raising money through Read-A-Thon's, Lemonade Stands, Toy Sales, etc to assist the library with it's transformation. We've raised over $1,000 to complete the project. Special thanks to member and local realtor Michelle Troha for her $500 donation to the library as a result of selling another member's home.

Every Spring club members participate in a collection drive, in conjunction with the Malvern Memorial Parade, of basic necessities to ship to deployed soldiers serving our country overseas through an organization called Soldier's Angels.

At Halloween time club member's children dress in costume and attend a Halloween Parade at the local assisted living facility.

Through the sales of cookbooks, coloring books, handmade hair accessories, baked goods, and donation cans at events such as Malvern's Victorian Christmas celebration we have raised hundreds of dollars for charities such as the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias, The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN), Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).

In addition to our traditional bake sale at Malvern's Victorian Christmas celebration, around the holidays the club also adopts a family or two from a local organization, Home of the Sparrow, that supports homeless and low-income women.

The Dads of MOMS Club also volunteer in our community and traditionally help decorate and hang holiday greens and lights on the lamp posts in the Borough to make the town a festive attraction in preparation for the big Victorian Christmas celebration.

Our club has provided unconditional support and assistance to some of our own members whose husbands have passed away, by cooking meals, donating items, and making monetary donations to college funds. We also make meals for club families when new babies arrive.

We help other local families, most recently one whose 2 year old has childhood cancer, Neuroblastoma, by delivering meals after they returned from additional rounds of chemotherapy at CHOP.

Our club responds with action in the face of disaster. When hurricane Sandy devastated the coastlines of NJ and NY, our club helped one member make an idea a reality. In one week's time, the club was able to spread the word, collect donations, and stuff two school buses full of supplies for victims of Sandy which were delivered directly to Atlantic City and a distribution point in Trenton.

In 2010 the Moms Club of Malvern worked on a proposal to add new and improved playground equipment to Greentree Park on 21 Grubb Road in Willistown township, Malvern, PA. The detailed proposal submitted in 2010 by the Moms Club, in partnership with Parks & Rec, was very well received by the community and the Board of Supervisors. Close to 500 signatures were collected on a petition by club members. Everyone acknowledged that the park was lacking sufficient and exciting playground equipment for a broad age range of kids and that the proposal was a fair and reasonably priced way to fix these deficiencies. However, the township was not able to find the funds for new equipment for the park that year. For some of us, this was not a response we could live with. We saw the bones of an amazing park in our own backyards and decided to roll up our sleeves and make it happen. Thus "FRIENDS OF GREENTREE PARK" was born. In one year's time the spin off group, with the sole purpose of raising funds, collected over $30,000 in donations and grants (in addition to a 25k match from the township) to build the new playground which was completed in the Spring/Summer of 2012.

We also make an annual donation to the International Moms Club Mother-to-Mother fund (used when personal or natural disaster strikes Moms Club members).
