Moms​ ​Organize​ ​to​ ​Raise​ ​Money​ ​for​ ‘​​Moms ​​on ​​Board’ Fund

This Sunday, Moms​ ​on​ ​Board​ ​will​ ​be​ ​hosting​ ​a​ ​Holiday​ ​Market​ ​&​ ​Fundraiser​ ​to support their efforts to make El Paso a more family-friendly environment.

Moms​ ​on​ ​Board​ ​(MOB)​, with some help from​ ​the​ ​Paso​ ​Del​ ​Norte​ ​Charitable​ ​Foundation, established the fund in order to “work together for the advocating​ ​of ​accommodations​ ​that​ ​cater​ ​to​ ​families​ ​and​ ​to​ ​promoting​ ​family-friendly​ ​environments​ ​at businesses​ ​and​ ​facilities​ ​in​ ​the​ ​El​ ​Paso​ ​region.”​

“We​ ​started​ ​a​ ​group​ ​on​ ​Facebook​ ​of​ ​like-minded​ ​parents​ ​(mostly​ ​Moms)​ ​and​ ​it​ ​quickly​ ​grew​ ​to​ ​over​ ​3,000​ ​members. Our​ ​group​ ​is​ ​motivated​ ​to​ ​build​ ​on​ ​and​ ​enhance​ ​local​ ​efforts​ ​so​ ​that​ ​El​ ​Paso’s​ ​families​ ​have​ ​more​ ​things​ ​to​ ​do​ ​and places​ ​to​ ​visit​ ​on​ ​a​ ​consistent​ ​basis,”​ ​explains​ ​founder,​ ​Adrianne​ ​Moody.​ ​

MOB​ ​is​ ​also​ ​engages​ ​civic​ ​leaders,​ ​businesses​ ​and​ ​various stakeholders​ ​to​ ​encourage​ ​family​ ​activities​ ​and​ ​inclusion​ ​of​ ​special​ ​features​ ​in​ ​venues​ ​that​ ​make​ ​for​ ​healthy​ ​family interaction. ​ ​

Recently, Mrs.​ ​Moody​ was appointed​ ​to​ ​the Parks​ ​and​ ​Recreation​ ​Advisory​ ​Board, ​by​ ​Mayor Dee​ ​Margo.​ ​​

​“Our​ ​first​ ​effort​ ​was​ ​to​ ​request​ ​that the​ ​city​ ​provide​ ​more​ ​shade​ ​at​ ​our​ ​spray​ ​parks​ ​and​ ​that​ ​led​ ​to​ ​the​ ​allocation​ ​of​ ​$1.2​ ​million​ ​towards​ ​shade​ ​and​ ​other family-friendly​ ​amenities​ ​at​ ​the​ ​spray​ ​parks,” Moody says.

“This​ ​is​ ​just​ ​the​ ​beginning,”​ ​adds​ ​Leyla​ ​Zeidan,​ ​co-founder​ ​of​ ​the​ ​group.​ ​“We​ ​are​ ​looking​ ​forward​ ​to​ ​a​ ​continued dialogue​ ​with​ ​city​ ​leadership​ ​and​ ​local​ ​businesses​ ​to​ ​build​ ​and​ ​expand​ ​on​ ​this​ ​early​ ​success.”

The​ ​event, scheduled for​ ​December​ ​3rd from​ ​12pm-5pm, will​ ​be​ ​held​ ​at​ ​EPIC​ ​Railyard,​ ​2201​ ​East​ ​Mills.

Organizers say the event will​ ​feature​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​vendors,​ ​a​ ​food court​ ​and​ ​kiddie​ ​corner.​ ​​ ​Kiddie​ ​corner​ ​will​ ​include​ ​a​ ​kid​ ​library​ ​with​ ​story​ ​time,​ ​music​ ​instruments​ ​to​ ​play,​ ​free​ ​one image​ ​with​ ​Santa,​ ​a​ ​fire​ ​truck​ ​and​ ​many more kid-friendly events.

For​ ​more​ ​information,​ ​​contact​ ​Adrianne​ ​Moody​ ​at​ ​915-920-7200​ ​or​ ​via email at momsonboardunite@gmail.com
