Mother’s Day


Shortly before Mother’s Day each year, a school in Brockton is chosen for this community activity of The Charity Guild.

  • Items that mothers would like are purchased by the Guild.
  • The classes come to the cafeteria where each child chooses items for their mother or a significant woman in their life.
  • The Guild volunteers then wrap them with colorful paper and ribbons for the children to give to their mother.

In 2017, The Charity Guild held its annual Mother’s Day event at the Brookfield School on May 9. With the help of Guild board members and other volunteers, about 130 boys and girls made gifts for their mom or another significant woman in their life.

Students were very excited to be giving these surprise gifts on Mother’s Day.

“I had lots of fun picking stuff for my mom. My mom had a glazed look on her face. I’m so happy that she was happy.”

“The only thing better than making it was giving it to my mom. She loved it and uses the soap, nail files, tissues and note pads daily.”
