Service Project THIS WEEK

Most of the moms in our group have been blessed with baby showers and hand-me-downs as we embarked on the journey of motherhood. This is our chance to shower love onto moms who have not had such a start. Throughout this semester we will be collecting baby, toddler and mom items for Mary's Shelter, a maternity home for pregnant teens and their babies.

Mary's Shelter empowers and equips vulnerable teen mothers and their babies for lives of hope, dignity and self-sufficiency. Learn more about Mary's Shelter here.
