Friday, May 13th, 2022

Shelter From the Rain Inc has partnered with Thomas and Hutton for a “Motors For Moms” Charity Car Show to raise funds for single mothers on Saturday, May 21, 2022 from 11 AM
to 2 PM
. The car, truck and bike show will be held at Exclusive Engravings located at 9701 Ford Ave, Richmond Hill, GA 31324 and open to the public with a $5 suggested donation.

Established in 2010, Shelter From the Rain is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, based out of Savannah, Georgia, that provides assistance to single Mothers. Their vision is to create a community of strong, economically independent single Mothers through education, mentorship, personal & professional development, homeownership, health and wellness. 

In 2020, 33% of households headed by single mothers had an average income below the national poverty rate. In the United States, one out of three children live in a single-parent family with 83% of these single-parent families headed by a woman. Single mothers are more likely to experience job displacement, poor academic attainment, live in poverty, and have episodic or chronic depression. It is critical that the community work together to support families in their journey to achieve economic mobility.
