CWL Baby Bottle Campaign

St. Mary’s CWL asks that you help support the Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre’s Baby Bottle Campaign. The funds raised enable the centre to continue operations, and to offer free of charge, support to all who walk through their doors. Please pick up a baby bottle or envelope at either entrance. Cheques can be made out to the Pregnancy Care Centre. Please return filled bottles by June 17/18 (Father’s Day).  A special drop container is available for returned bottles at the front entrance.

Please pray the Pregnancy Care Centre will be visible in the community as a safe place for all who seek help with an unplanned pregnancy.

 Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
