Jonesboro, Ga. (July 17, 2015) – The Heritage Community Foundation presented a grant to Sara Van Etten, Chair of the MOMS Club of Fayetteville Church Street Park Improvement Project, on July 9, 2015. The $1,500 grant will be used to purchase playground equipment to be installed at the Church Street Park in historic downtown Fayetteville. The main piece of equipment to be purchased is a Merry-Go-Cycle, a five-seat bicycle carousel that will be used by children ages 2-5 and will help complete a toddler-friendly area of the park. The Church Street Park is located just off Main Street in Fayetteville. Previously, it was underused by the local community, and the playground equipment was over 20 years old and in a state of disrepair. The aim of The MOMS Club is to create a neighborhood gathering place where all members of the community can enjoy the outdoors at an accessible, family-centered park with a variety of playground equipment.
The MOMS Club (Moms Offering Moms Support) of Fayetteville, Georgia is a chapter of the International MOMS Club, a non-profit, non-denominational support organization for the mother-at-home of today. Membership in the MOMS Club is open to at-home mothers and moms who work part-time or out of the home. There are 1,500+ chapters in the US alone and over 100,000 members.
