  • The MOMS Club of Coastal Delaware will soon hold its annual Children’s Consignment Sale and is seeking local organizations interested in receiving a portion of the proceeds from the fundraiser.
    Sheryl Burris, committee chair for the event, said a child-centered nonprofit organization is chosen each year to receive a percentage of sales from the event.
    “We want to help children in our community; not necessarily our children, but all children in need,” Burris said. “MOMS International requires each chapter to have a major service project every year, and our idea was to have this sale.”
    The MOMS Club is a nonprofit organization that supports at-home mothers and their children, according to the group’s website. There are over 2,000 chapters in seven countries and more than 100,000 members.
    In the past, Greenwood Baby Pantry, The Children’s Beach House, Read Aloud Delaware, Sussex County Parents as Teachers, Sussex County Foster Parents Association, The Dakota Lamb Memorial Fund and Primeros Pasos Early Learning Center have been recipients of funding from the sale. Burris said the amount donated is based on the gross sales of the event, and the highest amount donated so far was $6,500.
    According to Laura Kucharik, also of The MOMS Club of Coastal Delaware, funds must be used to benefit children of Sussex County and the selected recipient must volunteer at the consignment sale. Kucharik said organizations interested in becoming a recipient must submit an application, which is reviewed to ensure the group meets MOMS Club guidelines. The recipient is chosen by club membership.
    Burris said it’s possible there could be more than one recipient chosen. Also, local organizations could receive items leftover from the event, if the consigner leaves them as donations. She said in the past, Read Aloud Delaware has taken leftover books and Clothing Our Kids has taken leftover clothes.
