THE PREGNANCY CARE CENTRE
Thank-You!!! We are so incredibly blown away by the local church here in Kamloops. When we were faced with changing our fundraising efforts to a virtual baby bottle campaign we had no idea what to expect, but you took on the challenge. We were so grateful!!! Together, the churches in our city have raised $20,712.55 for the work of the ministry! Wow! Like really WOW! These funds will help us continue our programs without interruption. We believe that every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy should have ongoing support from that positive pregnancy test until kindergarten. With your support we can continue to do just that.
If you would like to see how much your church was able to raise, you can find it on this link: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/pregnancy-care-centre-society-of-kamloops/p2p/Babybottlecampaign/
The link includes donations that came in virtually as well as those that were mailed in or dropped off at our office. Thank-you again for running with this new idea and helping us to support women and families in our community.
