Day 3 of 13 Days of Giving: Twilight Moms

Twilight Moms of Middle Georgia is a non-profit group that was formed in 2009 to bring together Moms (women who are over 21, married or have children) who are fans of the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer.  

They not only enjoy meeting and sharing enthusiasm for this series but love helping local and national charities while having fun.

How You Can Help:
Twilight Moms will have an event on Dec. 3 from 10 p.m.-Midnight at the Galleria in Centerville.  Twilight Moms will celebrate the release of Eclipse on DVD but will also have several fundraisers during the event.  They will have a Cookies for Kids with Cancer bake sale, will collect items for Christmas for the Children’s Hospital and will also collect canned food items for Monroe County EMS.
