A local club raised more than $1,200 for needy mothers at a garage sale Saturday that boasted thousands of children's items at bargain prices. More than 90 members of the Moms Club of Burbank donated 7,500 items of clothing - each of which was on sale for $1 - and roughly 75 strollers, cribs, high chairs and rocking horses to the garage sale. The event drew dozens of mothers - some expecting, others with their kids in tow. “When you're an at-home mom, you gave up your salary - the idea is to help cover expenses,” said club member Karen Bowlin, a stay-at-home mother of two who hosted the event.

Maya Kukes BURBANK -- Being a stay-at-home mom can be a lonely job, especially for women whose social lives were once fed predominantly by their careers. That's where the Moms Club of Burbank comes in. A local chapter of a national organization, the 45-member club offers social opportunities as well as support to mothers -- and fathers -- of all ages who stay at home. "When you're home all day with your children, there's not a lot of outlets socially," member Donna Cunningham said.
