MUM Supports Bowling for Kids Sake 4-15-18
MUM was sponsored to support the Big Brother Big Sisters program by attending the Bowl for Kids Sake event.  There was over $8,000 raised at the event while everyone had a great time bowling and crossed their fingers in hopes of winning door prizes.  The MUM participants brought their children and were able to spend quality time as a group.  
Trinity Training 3-2-18
MUM attended the food preparation at Trinity Church as they prepare for the Sunday meal that they offer to those who are less fortunate.  Beginning in April, MUM will asssist with the food preparation adn serving of the meal on the first Sunday of every month.  This is another opportunity for the participants in MUM to give back to the community while getting involved with church activities. 


Several guys that have been giving their time to M.U.M. have been attending Toastmasters meetings with John Pederson who has been a Toastmaster for a long time.  Mr. Pederson made a committment to help those in M.U.M. build their communication skills as well as their confidence.

M.U.M Inagural  Haircut 1-8-18
Today M.U.M offered it's first round of haircuts.  Participants signed up  at the Shalom Center where they were picked up and transported to and from the barber shop.  The barber (Terry) had coffee, soft music, the HT and a warm greeting.  Terry himself had at one time experienced homelessness due to addiction and was elated to be able to reach out to others. Not only offering a haircut but more importantly hope to those trapped in this cycle.
The hope of the haircuts is to raise confidence in these men and women as they move on in their lives. Terry offered a free follow up cut to those that gain employment.  We not only would like to thank Terry for offering his barber skills, but we thank him for the hope that he shared with each man that sat in his chair.   We look forward to our next visit!  And we want to offer people the chance to support this program through donations on our website!
