Baby Bottle - fundraiser for Cambridge Pregnancy Centre 14 May-18 June
Make a difference in the lives of young parents in our community by taking a Baby Bottle from Mother's Day until Father's Day, and filling it with change OR you can write a cheque and insert it into the baby bottle. This simple act makes a lasting impact in the lives of women and babies by giving them an opportunity to learn, to grow and to choose life. It may seem small, but the impact is huge. Thank you and may God bless you in your support of the most vulnerable in our community.
