LeaAnn Fuller with Fuller Life, LLC is teaming up with From the Heart Events to host the Second Annual Ladies’ Night to support her Adopt-A-Mom for Christmas Program. Through this program and the help of friends and family Fuller has given gifts to hundreds of single and struggling moms throughout Central New York over the past six years. With this event, they have been able to impact more women’s lives and would like to continue this holiday season and throughout the following year.
Fuller started this program as a chance to bring back the holiday spirit in what would become her own mother’s last Christmas. What was normally her mom’s favorite holiday was full of sadness and pain as her mom was extremely ill. This is when she decided to do something for others because that is what her mother had always done. Knowing the difficulties of a single mom especially at the holidays, who better to do something for than those she can relate with, single moms?
The very humble beginning of only donating to 10 women that first year has now grown to 100 this past year. Those 100 moms included locally-nominated moms, moms at the Ronald McDonald House, Joseph House, Vera House, Exodus House, and Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. It is the hope to continue to donate gifts to 100 moms this holiday season and continue a movement to make impact for women year-round.
Adopt-A-Mom Ladies’ Night will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Nov. 28 at the Colgate Inn in Hamilton. Visit lovingyourfullerlife.com/adopt-a-mom-for-christmas for more information.
