Mary Lou Moramarco - Volunteer Extraordinaire

Mary Lou Moramarco serves Holmdel with exuberance, energy, and enthusiasm. A dynamo who is dedicated to enriching her community, she works as a volunteer in many different organizations, while also pursuing a career as a natural childbirth educator.

Mary Lou Moramarco serves Holmdel with exuberance, energy, and enthusiasm. A dynamo who is dedicated to enriching her community, she works as a volunteer in many different organizations, while also pursuing a career as a natural childbirth educator.
Mary Lou’s civic involvement spans arenas from recreation and sports to scouting to parent organizations to social issues. She has her hand in many pots, adding her own special seasonings of care to each. The common ingredient in all her endeavors is quite evident — helping. Literally from birth, she has always been involved and ready to lend a hand.
Mary Lou has been a natural childbirth educator for over 13 years and conducts Bradley Childbirth classes in a midwives’ office located in Avon. She is delighted and honored to be involved in witnessing the miracle of life.
Next, Mary Lou focuses on the nourishment of those new lives; for 16 years she has been associated with La Leche League (a breastfeeding organization). She became involved after the birth of her first child when, as a new mother, she needed support and guidance. She has been a leader for 13 years, helping to support breastfeeding moms, and is currently involved nationally as a member of the Pizzazz Team, coordinating speakers and logistics for the 50th Anniversary of the La Leche League Conference, to be hosted in Chicago this year.
As if all this was not enough, off to school we go! Mary Lou is totally involved as a parent volunteer in all the schools in town. At one point or another she has taken on leadership roles in each school’s parent organization. One of the many hats she wears is as president of the W. R. Satz Middle School Parent Support Group (PSG), which engages in fundraising activities; they donate the proceeds from their programs to enrich the students’ experiences at the school. Mary Lou has also assumed the responsibility as the chairperson of Special Projects at the Village School and has served as president of the Indian Hill School’s Parent Liaison Group (PLG). At Holmdel High School she is the Sophomore Class Liaison of the Parent-Teacher-Student Organization (PTSO).
Apart from the traditional fundraising activities usually conducted by these groups, she has used this as a platform to show the children the power they have to make a difference through good deeds and good works. After hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Holmdel residents went into action raising funds for the devastated areas. Holmdel school children provided emotional support by making cards for children in the hurricane-affected areas. In addition, the children in the Village School, under the guidance of second-grade teacher Mike Braun, began a 1,000,000 penny fundraising campaign from September 2005 to June 2006...and the children met their goal! Then Mary Lou, Chairperson Mike Simpson, and the rest of the Township Disaster Recovery Committee decided where to disperse funds. She became a liaison to Pass Christian (the parish they “adopted”). Through dealings with officials there, Mary Lou learned that this school district needed a uniform printer system, so the funds were used to purchase 25 printers for them.
Another children’s project spearheaded by Mary Lou involves Holmdel children with Project Linus (an organization dedicated to providing home-made blankets to help comfort children suffering with illness and trauma). The Holmdel students created quilt squares, which were then used as components of pillowcases and donated to the project. For youth enrichment and recreation Mary Lou has volunteered as a Cub Scout, Daisy, and Girl Scout leader. Through the Holmdel Youth Athletic Association (HYAA), she has coached softball and has been president of the baseball program. She also has been an officer of the Football and Wrestling Associations.
If all that was not enough, Mary Lou is a member of the Shade Tree Commission and also the Neighborhood Watch program and Citizen Emergency Response Team (CERT), helping to keep Holmdel safe.
Mary Lou has lived in Holmdel for 12 years with her husband Tom Zoccolo and children Vinny, Allie, and Isabelle.
