THE WOMEN'S CENTER - Ongoing Request

In our nation approximately 1 million abortions are performed each year. The aborted babies aren’t the only victims. Their mothers, who in many cases were pressured into the abortion, are also victims. Sooner or later, they experience horrible grief and depression. At the Women’s Centers we try to enable women struggling with problem pregnancies to give birth and save them from grieving later.

SEEKING FAMILY ROOM DONATIONS - We need diapers in sizes 4, 5, and 6; pull-ups in sizes 4, 5, 6; boys and girls sleepers sizes 9 to 12 months; receiving blankets, new pacifier s, baby wipes, baby shampoo, and lotion. For more information, please call at773-794-1313.
