To the world, you are a mother, but to your family, you are the world – [Source unknown]
At NOC centers this week, children celebrated Mother’s Day. Mothers are truly the heartbeat of the community. At NOC we see mothers every day picking up their children, making sure they have every opportunity for a good life. We see mothers supporting their families by taking classes provided by NOC. We also see mothers donating time to help at our centers, donating snacks and supplies for the students, and volunteering to carpool other neighborhood children to and from NOC. Tokens of appreciation made this week by the students may be small in comparison to the impact mothers have on the children, but you can be assured they are infused with oceans of love.
Happy Mother’s Day from NOC. Thank you for all that you do!
