As part of the Christmas is for Children (CIFC) campaign, JacQuetta's Angels is seeking donations to provide gifts to children in the Dallas Metroplex this holiday season, thanks all to the support of MOM Squad.
JacQuetta's Angels, founded by JacQuetta Clayton, is an agency of CIFC that helps to distribute gifts and food to children and families during the holidays. The group is part of the MOM Squad, a national youth education organization made up of mothers of professional athletes.
"We are very happy to be a part of the Christmas is for Children program, which will help about 1,000 kids this year have a wonderful Christmas," Clayton said. "It's very important for us to be able to do something like this, and it's all thanks to the support of the MOM Squad."
CIFC, a nonprofit organization founded in 1991, works to provide all children with the love, care and joy that comprise the spirit of Christmas. It seeks donations from individuals and organizations of food, gifts, money and/or time. CIFC provides thousands of children with gifts each holiday season, and the need is ever growing. All of the families in the program will also receive a basket of a week's worth of groceries.
The MOM Squad (http://momsquad.org) is a national nonprofit organization that was formed to benefit at-risk youth and whose mission is community service with a focus on children. Its goal is to develop a national presence by creating a MOM Squad in every city in which its members’ professional athlete children make their living.
The MOM Squad is made up of mothers of numerous famous athletes and artists, including Clayton (Mark Clayton of NFL's St. Louis Rams), Sheron Smith (hip-hop artist Mos Def), Bonita Jackson (Adrian Peterson of Minnesota Vikings), Carolyn Smith (actor/rapper Will Smith), Mary Anthony (Carmelo Anthony of NBA's New York Knicks) and Sherry Williams (Carnell Williams of St. Louis Rams).
"This is another example of how the MOM Squad helps youth all across the nation," said Mitch Gould, CEO of InHealth Media, a company that supports the MOM Squad. "It's no surprise that this organization is involved with something like the CIFC."
The CIFC campaign is currently accepting donations of food, clothing, money and other gifts. For more information, visit http://www.christmasisforchildren.com.
