Saturday March 24th marked the 18th Moms United of Marengo resale event in 9 years. With up to 70 sellers, an abundance of gently used clothing, toys, baby equipment and more started in the Zion gym and now has the walls of the MCHS commons bursting each spring and for “back to school.” Shoppers come from far and wide across Northern Illinois, averaging around 700, knowing this is a bargain hunters dream. This event was a means to help support Moms United, a monthly group that met at Zion Lutheran Church to hear inspiring speakers and fellowship amongst mothers with childcare provided. Being blessed with such tremendous success with these sales, the group now gives back to the Marengo-Union communities by sponsoring events like the Cancer Kids 5K, Lutheran Charities Comfort Dogs and the Marengo Park rebuild. For items left for donation to the M.O.R.E. Pantry, thank you to our volunteer driver Mr. Ham for your service.

A special note of sincere appreciation needs to be mentioned to the outstanding committee members for dedicating so much time, effort and love to this amazing organization…I could never do this without you. xoxo Cecily

This Easter Moms United hosted a breakfast fundraiser at Zion Lutheran Church to help the family of baby Levi who was born in December with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. The group no longer meets for monthly “meetings”, but now they focus on having monthly “outings” where moms can get together and have fun at various activities. Open to anyone, and always welcoming new faces, to get more information about Moms United, please visit their Facebook page (Moms United Marengo) or for upcoming sales information for sellers and buyers (www.momsunited-zion.com).
