Update regarding COVID-19 situation: Please note that at this time, for health and safety reasons, the MOMS Club of Reading is not having any in-person gatherings. We are working on virtual events for our members.
The MOMS Club® of Reading is a wonderful way for you to meet other moms, who live in and near Reading, MA, as well as a fun way for your children to meet other children and make friends.
Regardless if you're new to the area, lived here your whole life, or something in between... if you're a Mom, and you live in Reading, MA or in a bordering town, this MOMS Club® is for YOU
WHO WE ARE:
Moms from Reading and the surrounding area. We are an active group of more than 100 stay-at-home moms and working moms, with mostly newborns through young school-aged children, both people new to the area and those who have been in the area for awhile. We are a local chapter of an international non-profit organization that has over 2100 chapters across the U.S. Our chapter boundaries include Reading, North Reading, Lynnfield, Stoneham, Wakefield, Woburn and Wilmington. (Moms in local towns outside our boundaries may also join, pending permission from the International MOMS Club®.)
HOW WE SUPPORT EACH OTHER:
Weekly playgroups, mom’s nights out, family events, book club, notification of local activities, organization of interest groups, meals provided in times of need, online forum for advice and questions.
All of our members have the ability to schedule events and can see who is hosting and attending.
HOW WE SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY:
Meetups at local businesses, annual donation of museum passes to Reading Public Library and Flint Memorial Library in North Reading, service projects to benefit the children of Reading and the surrounding area, including collections for organizations such as the Reading Food Pantry.
The goals of the MOMS Club® of Reading, MA are to: provide each other support while having fun with our children and moms of Reading, MA, provide a forum for topics of interest to women, give mothers more of voice in our community, as well as perform service projects and fundraising to benefit the children in Reading, MA and the surrounding areas.
We are a 501(C)(3) charity.
