Care Net Baby Bottle Campaign 2016

Care Net is an organization to help women, especially with unplanned pregnancies. Between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, change is collected in baby bottles and then donated to them so they are able to continue all the help they provide. We are a drop off point for baby bottles, so come by between office hours, (or see you on Sunday morning) and bring your baby bottle!

From their website:

What: Please join our baby bottle campaign as an outreach opportunity for your church to help provide life-affirming pregnancy support services to families in need. The collection of change, bills and checks as a special offering supports your local Care Net pregnancy center ministry.
