Mother's Day Councils
The Outstanding Mother Awards is a partnership between the American Lung Association and the National Father's Day/ Mother's Day Council, which strives to heighten the meaning of motherhood through local Mother's Day Councils comprised of volunteer community leaders in major cities throughout the country. The first local councils are being formed in Chicago, San Diego, Seattle and Honolulu. These councils celebrate moms through the Outstanding Mother Awards, helping to raise significant funds for the lifesaving work of the American Lung Association.
