    Tis’ the Season to Give Back

    Tis’ the Season to Give Back

    On December 11th, 2021, The Mom & Dad Project took 24 volunteers to Gateway Community Church located in San Bernardino to put together 650 meals for families in need. The Mom & Dad Project has participated in this event for the past 7 years. “It is a great way to start the holiday season, by giving back to those who need it. It makes the holidays feel brighter, knowing that you helped make someone’s day a little easier.” Said Nichole McGivney, Maternal Health Coordinator for The Mom & Dad Project.

    This event is organized by The Inland Empire Community Collaborative, which The Mom & Dad Project is a founding organization. This is the 8th annual IECC Food Drive and The Mom & Dad Project staff and volunteers have participated in all 8 years. “It is something we look forward to every year” said Mom & Dad Project Director Megan Meadors. “”it is great to take our family and friends down and lend a hand to those who need it most.”

    The Inland Empire Community Collaborative (IECC) is the result of nine years of 87 non-profit agencies working together to strengthen our organizations and improve outcomes for individuals and communities throughout San Bernardino County.

    Each member organization in the IECC participated in a yearlong capacity building academy (CBA), including ongoing technical assistance and coaching.  Each of the members have a sustainability plan which directly responds to the needs and priorities of our target audiences and local communities.  Funding for this groundbreaking and ambitious capacity building strategy has been provided by First 5 San Bernardino County.

    The IECC has partnered with Navidad En El Barrio, a nonprofit agency that seeks food donations from major food companies to create food baskets for the holidays. For over 20 years and more than a MILLION dollars a year worth of food NEEB has helped make Christmas a little brighter for needy families.
