Collecting Our Change
from Mother's Day to Father's Day
Refuge Pregnancy Center
is a non-profit Christian organization.
All services are free.
Beginning on Mother's Day we distribute empty baby bottles. During the next few weeks we invite you to contribute your pocket change (and bills!). On Father's Day we begin collecting your filled bottles and pass on the proceeds to the Refuge Pregnancy Center. We have the joy of supporting women who have made the challenging decision of carrying their baby to term, helping them with the costs of medical care, formula, diapers, and clothes for their newborn child. Let's do ALL we can to support them in CHOOSING LIFE!
Family Promise is entering its fund raising campaign called Road Builder 278 in which we are asking individuals to donate $278 to Family Promise. This amount will provide services to a family for 14 days.
We are asking any person who has a heart for homeless children to give so that Family Promise can get started with helping families move out of homelessness. There is no financial donation that is too small or too large. We need your help to begin rebuilding Family Promise. The mailing address is: Family Promise of NewRock, Inc., PO Box 81551, Conyers, Ga. 30013 or donate online here.
