Matteson Generations Backpack Drive

The Matteson IL Mom’s Generations Group has been established and meeting for about 10 years. We praise God for all the leaders and wonderful moms who have faithfully kept this group going and making a difference in countless ways in the lives of families. Throughout the year they plan different events and gatherings for moms and their children. They bring the community together to be a blessing to families in impactful ways. One of their annual events is a backpack drive, supplying children with school supplies. You can read about the great success they had this year below. We celebrate with them all that God has done and the good things He has ahead for them. Pray a blessing over these moms and children as they start a new school year!

On this past weekend, the Aglow Moms were chosen to be vendors at the Great Lakes Credit Union "Summer Celebration" Community Appreciation Event. The moms had fun telling people about Aglow and what the Aglow Moms do. They were able to talk to 29 people who signed up either as single moms or as volunteers to help out with any of the moms' upcoming events. Everyone had fun, they were able to meet a lot of interesting people, and a lot of people learned about Aglow. The credit union also gave out free tacos, jerk chicken, popcorn, ice cream and ice water. There were also games and other activities.
