Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 11, is right around the corner, and many of us wonder how we may best honor our mothers.

Sometimes we’re able to spend time together –the best gift of all–and we may honor Mom with a gift. How much we spend is never sufficient to express how much we love or honor our Mom.

Sadly for many of us, the joy of our mothers presence no longer exists. But we still yearn to do something in honor of our mothers.

A wonderful way is to consider making a monetary donation in honor or in memory of our moms. Designating a gift to the Food Bank, to utility or rental assistance will help mothers in our client caseload who are struggling to make ends meet for their families.

Shopping at Treasures on Park Street is a great option for those of us who want to buy a special gift but have a limited budget. TREASURES offers many choices for Mother’s Day shoppers. A lovely card and an affordable gift of clothing for any occasion, or accessories like jewelry, purses, and hats. Collectables of all types, craft items, books, games and DVD’s, beautiful, lasting floral arrangements —even original artwork!

Visit TREASURES Monday through Saturday and find your one of a kind gift for Mom…at a most reasonable price. Your Mom will be honored with your thoughtfulness, and less fortunate mothers in our community will benefit from your generosity.

And don’t forget to mention, I LOVE YOU MOM!!
