POETS

POETS was created by a group of moms who met for playgroup once a week but wanted to do more for their community.  We felt that we were "Put On Earth To Serve".  POETS has been working to help families and children in Orange County since April 2008.  To date we have:

1.  Helped three families through the Newport Mesa Unified School District with necessities (food, clothing, toiletries, etc.) - May 2008

2.  Provided 215 supply filled backpacks for eight elementary schools in Costa Mesa plus 100 sets of supplies for one elementary. (Sept. 2008)

3.  Provided one family in tremendous need with clothes, food, toiletries, and $3000.

4.  Helped four families in  Costa Mesa during the holiday season by providing food, clothing, toiletries, and gift cards. (Dec. 2008)

5.  Helped a family in need paint their new home, purchase furniture for their home, and provided meals.  (Nov. 2008)

6.  Provided a car and repairs to a young lady.  (Nov. 2008)

We are looking to continue in the new year.  We would love for you to join us on our adventure.
