M.O.M.S.' Mission is to provide Comforts from Home for those serving abroad as well as moral support and camaraderie to their families.
Over the past 11 years, and with the love, generosity and support of Sonoma County and others from the North Bay, M.O.M.S. has shipped 114,235 pounds of Comforts from Home care package goodies to our deployed Sonoma County Troops stationed in Iraq, Egypt, Afghanistan, Albania, Korea, Syria, Bahrain, Japan and Okinawa.
Mothers of Military Servicemembers was founded in early 2003 by Sonoma County mothers in support of service members deployed during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
