Frisco Moms Care aims to engage women to support and lift one another for the betterment of our community. Through the below programs, we create opportunities for women to care for each other by supplementing and/or filling gaps in community funding for families in need through financial assistance, clothing, housewares, meals, and other special support.
What We Do
FM Cares Community Support
Through a partnership with Trusted World, we are able to provide quality gently used clothing to the whole family. Those clothing orders are then available for pickup in Frisco typically within 24 to 48 hours, if not sooner.
These emergency food boxes, stocked on FM Cares shelves, are carefully packed to ensure each member of the family has enough food to eat three meals a day for a week.
Personal Hygiene Kit
Many times items like shampoo and soap are taken for granted and personal hygiene is a huge need in every community. These fill the emergency need, so no matter the circumstance each individual has their basic hygiene met. We have feminine hygiene on hand as well.
Cleaning Supply Packages
When donations allow, we have various household cleaning supplies ready for those that need them. These are items not covered by their SNAP benefits and are highly sought after by families.
Emergency Utility Bill Assistance**
In the event of an emergency we are able to offer a one time utility bill payment to those that qualify, as long as funds allow. Applicants must be able to produce a bill in their name as we only make payments directly to the utility provider.
**At this time this assistance is specific to families in the cities of Frisco, Little Elm, or those that fall within the FISD or LEISD boundaries.
Each school-age qualifying child may request to receive a new backpack and new pair of shoes prior to the start of the new school year. We partner with local Title I schools to assess the needs and make sure that no child is left without.
Winter Coat Project
Every year, before the first cold spell hits, new winter coats are purchased for and provided to qualifying children. Gently used coats are also provided to adults upon request. This is in addition to the gently used jackets/ coats that are provided by our partner, Trusted World, by request, throughout the year.
Our Community Projects
Valentine's Sweetheart Project
Local mothers who have been recently widowed or lost a child are nominated by community members and adopted as our “Valentine.” We assemble and personally deliver baskets of gifts and services that we hope remind them they are loved.
In an effort to spread the feeling of community love, we deliver blankets and notes of support to women and children in a time of personal struggle or crisis. Material is purchased by FMC, and blankets are made by the mother of one of FMC’s founding members.
Healthcare Appreciation Project
Care packages filled with snacks and various goodies are assembled by our team and delivered to healthcare professionals in the community.
Mother's Day Project
Gift baskets of comfort items are delivered to mothers of patients in local pediatric cardiac units, pediatric intensive care units, and neonatal intensive care units for Mother's Day.
Teacher Appreciation Project
During the spring, packages filled with snacks and extra school supplies are assembled and delivered to teachers in several Title I schools in Little Elm ISD and Frisco ISD. We also assist the counselors at Title I schools with connecting with local businesses to show appreciation to teachers during this week.
