Saturday may have been a washout but that didn’t stop the MOMS Club of Douglassville West from hosting their 3rd Summertime Kids and Community Expo at St Paul’s United Church of Christ.

The MOMS Club of Douglassville West actively supports mom’s located West of Old Airport Road, including Douglassville addresses in Amity and Union Townships and the borough of Birdsboro. The Club was founded to provide a support group for mothers and provide social opportunities for families like working on community service projects.

Originally started as a winter clothing sale, the MOMS Club of Douglassville West transitioned the expo concept into a summer time community fair to help local families find new and exciting activities for their kids. Several areas of interest were represented including child centered schools, arts programs, athletic programs, birthday party specialists and local small businesses.

“We enjoy partnering with other local nonprofits to help with their fundraising efforts.” – Jennifer Shelgren, President of the MOMS Club of Douglassville West

More than just your typical vendor expo, the Community Fair raises money for local nonprofits. Saturday’s event had two benefactors, the Just Keep Swimming Relay for Life Team of Daniel Boone and St. Paul’s Youth Ministry Anti bullying campaign.
