Our thanks to More than Milk for reaching out and forging a new friendship with us. MTM’s mission is in complete harmony with our mission and together we created incredible intergenerational events that were beneficial for every age that participated – from infant to Gen X to Boomer to our most senior members of society. It was a pleasure to work with MTM and they were beyond generous with their time, talent and compassion. Kindness is understood by all ages. – Heather Dudzinski, Manager, Young Professionals Advisory Board, Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly, Chicago Chapter
What a great organization focused on providing meaningful connections for moms with other moms and with organizations and causes across the city that certainly benefit from the contribution of time and energy. AND a financial contribution on top of that is icing on the cake. Congratulations and thank you. – Lisa McDonald, Director of Volunteer Programming & Donor Events
More than Milk has been a wonderful partner to Open Books and we are so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with them. MTM developed an ongoing philanthropic-themed storytime at the Open Books store, created a fundraising read-a-thon to help support our literacy programs, and organized fun, engaging events for parents and young children to learn about giving back and the importance of reading (we are a literacy organization, after all!).
We love the idea of family volunteerism and hope that More than Milk can continue to inspire new generations of civic-minded and conscientious community members! Thank you More than Milk! - Erica Hawkinson, Open Books Marketing Manager
