Moms' Group Donates to T.H.E. Foundation

A group of moms looks ahead and starts "investing" in local schools.

Mothers and More, a support group of moms from Calabasas and neighboring areas formerly known as the MOMS Club of Calabasas, just donated over $1,200 to the T.H.E. Foundation on Tuesday.

Club president Daphne Etcheverry was on hand to present the check to foundation board members Deanna Glassberg, Jessica Nedick and Stephanie Williams.

"We donate annually and in the past, we've donated to food banks and shelters,' said Etcheverry, a Calabasas resident.

T.H.E. Foundation was a unanimous choice, according to club secretary Loanette Tumpak.

Founded in 2010, T.H.E. Foundation closely works with the (LVUSD) as a fundraising arm to provide consistent and sustainable funding for instruction and programs. 

"We are looking ahead and investing in this school district, knowing that most of us will have kids attending the local schools anyway," said the mom of two from Woodland Hills. 

It wasn't a stretch to raise funds, said vice-president Jennifer Rastein. "We did bake sales and other fundraisers," said the former teacher at and .

Mothers and More of Calabasas is part of a national non-profit organization that provides support, education and advocacy to moms all over the country.

"We have play groups, moms' night-outs and weekend activities," said Tumpak. "We also pay yearly dues and elect officers annually just like most clubs."

Aside from the women, T.H.E. Foundation board members and school board members, LVUSD staff led by outgoing superintendent Dr. Donald Zimring and incoming superintendent Dan Stepenosky were also on hand to witness the check presentation. 

Said Williams, "We are very touched and thrilled about this donation. It is the start of a great partnership."
