MSGPR invites you to a Baby Shower!
This year, as in years past, The Pregnancy Help Center (PHC) of Lufkin, TX is hosting a Babypalooza-A Texas-sized Baby Shower from January 14-February 17, 2013. This event is dedicated to collecting baby items that new parents need to adequately care for their buddles of joy. The local community has always provided the supplies needed for this amazing ministry and the PHC along with MSGPR would like you to consider, once again, picking up any of the items listed below on your next shopping trip:
- Diapers (all sizes, including training pants)
- Rash Cream
- Baby Wash
- New socks
- Nail clippers
- Grooming kits
- Teething gel
- Boys clothing up to 2T (winter)
- Baby toys (rattles, keys, etc.)
PHC also accepts new and gently used toys, furniture and clothing.
These items are used in a unique program provided by the Pregnancy Help Center. The center’s Learn to Earn Parenting Education Program offers classes and activities for future or existing parents developed to provide parenting skills and knowledge as well as build confidence and self-esteem. By participating in a variety of activities these “students” can earn vouchers to spend in the resource room on the much-needed items the community has donated. The more they LEARN, the more they EARN! Types of activities encouraged include but are not limited to:
- Attending a PHC sponsored event or group class.
- Attending a church to get sermon notes signed by a pastor and meet with a Spiritual Mentor.
- Completing their M.A.P. (Monthly Action Plan) each month.
- Attending a one-on-one mentoring appointment with designated mentor.
- Maintaining a healthy family with proof of child immunizations, doctor visits and dental visits.
- Watching a video, then discussing the video with a mentor while receiving mentoring.
For over 27 years, The Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin has offered needed information, resources, and loving support to sexually active, pregnant and mothering women of all ages and has encouraged positive responses to some of life’s difficult choices.
The PHC’s primary focus is to provide positive alternatives to abortion for those facing an unexpected pregnancy. Their services are FREE OF CHARGE and available regardless of race, religion, age, marital status, education level, financial status or any other factor. Their goal is to provide information, parenting-skills, support through mentorship and spiritual healing for post-abortive mothers.
Celebrate LIFE and LOVE by helping struggling mothers and fathers provide for their babies in practical ways. Bring your donated items to MSGPR’s Lufkin office at 1511 S. Chestnut Dr. and be part of this amazing opportunity to support one of our non-profit clients and a pillar in the community.
