A mother is someone who loves her children without condition; someone who puts the needs of her kids before hers; someone who accepts us for who we are regardless of our imperfections and weaknesses. We’ve been celebrating Mother’s Day in the United States for a hundred years now to honor our mothers and give thanks to all that they’ve done for us. We give our moms presents (in the form of cards, flowers, chocolates, and what-nots); bring them to fancy restaurants or take them on vacations. Indeed, lucky are those mothers who are still remembered by their children. But what about those who are in nursing homes and do not even hear a word from their kids? Why don’t we make them happy this Mother’s Day?
THE STRESS RELIEVERS’ MOTHER’S DAY SLIPPER DRIVE
In celebration of Mother’s Day, The Stress Relievers have decided to gather non-skid slippers for residents in low-income nursing homes. Slipper donations will be accepted during the Stress Relievers’ April Happy Hour which will be held on April 9, 2014, from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM in Maguires Hill 16, #535 North Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale FL. The distribution of the slippers, on the other hand, will be done on Mother’s Day itself, May 11th. For queries, you may contact Douglas Orr Plumbing.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
We are grateful to all of you who have shown The Stress Relievers unfailing support since the day our group was formed. This month, we’re knocking on your kind hearts once again for us to be able to give those mothers in nursing homes a special day to remember. If you can spare a pair or two of NON-SKID SLIPPERS, it will be greatly appreciated! You can give us the slippers during our April Happy Hour or you may also bring them in our office in Miami Springs.
WHO ARE THE STRESS RELIEVERS?
The Stress Relievers is an informal group of family-owned companies that deliver services to property managers, building owners and board members in Miami Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County. The group is driven by the goal of creating enjoyable and yet enlightening events that focus on the improvement of life in the community. We started out through “meet-and-greet” events which later on developed into activities and programs that increase social awareness and center on pushing towards remarkable causes. Today, the group is comprised of Best Roofing, Elcon Electric, Driveway Maintenance, Service Master 24/7 and yours truly, Douglas Orr Plumbing.
