Amerigroup celebrates mothers with ‘Mommy and Me’ event at Valley Healthcare in Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Amerigroup hosted a celebration for mothers Tuesday at Valley Healthcare ahead of Mother’s Day.

The organization set up tables outside of the women’s health clinic, offering candy, diapers, and goodie bags to mothers as well as moms-to-be. The event was called “Mommy and Me” and aimed to show appreciation to mothers.

A doctor at Valley Healthcare said it’s important to remember how much mothers do for their children.

“Everything you do, when you wake up, you’re giving, you’re doing something,” said Dr. Kamesha Harbison. “Everything you’re doing is for the betterment of someone else. So, we’ve got to take that moment, and we’ve got to honor our moms. It’s a shame it’s only one day, but we’re thankful for that and we want to make sure we do it in a fabulous style.”

Representatives from Amerigroup said it’s good to see mom’s pass by the tables and smile. They’re hoping the gifts will remind moms just how loved they are.
