Thanks to all the men, women and children who supported and participated in our 2016 programs & events! Our focus was on relationship building activities to improve the quality of family relationships. The past year has been an active and exciting one for Mothers and Daughters United, Inc. In 2016, we moved into our corporate office at The Life Enrichment Center 425 N Findlay St. Suite 222 Dayton, OH 45404. We're looking forward to hosting events & seminars at this location and partnering with other organizations in the building. We've continued to support other organizations like the American Heart Association by donating our custom gift baskets to their Annual Heart Ball event. In May 2016, we were excited to appear on the Living Dayton show to highlight our cake decorating classes for mothers and their children in honor of Mother's Day. In Sept 2016 and for the past 3 years, we've participated in the Dayton Parent Magazine's KidsFest event. By participating as a vendor at KidFest, it allows us to connect with families in our community who may benefit from our services. In Oct 2016, through our Pearls, Pumps, and Purses program, we hosted our Skate & Roll Out Against Domestic Violence fundraiser and were able to donate $200 to the Artemis Center. In honor of our active duty and veteran women, we hosted our 3rd Annual Women of Honor Military Luncheon at the Dayton Women's Club. We had great food, speakers, and entertainment! We're so thankful to Operation Card Angels and Hearts for Heroes for the gifts they provided to the military women. In Dec 2016, we ended the year with our Cookie & Ornament Decorating party! This is always an exciting time for the children who attend. We provided story time for the kids, hot chocolate, and supplies needed to decorate the cookies and ornaments. Thanks to all of our volunteers, families, and organizations for helping us make 2016 a great year! We're looking forward to seeing you in 2017.
