This year, LLC is partnering and supporting Crisis Pregnancy Centre (CPC) and hoping to display God’s love and to be a blessing through these hampers. These hampers will go towards pregnant or new single mothers and some have partners or even other children. All have faced pregnancy in the past year to two years in less-than-ideal circumstances and all are facing financial hardship. We are looking to provide hampers for THREE families (roughly $300 each) with grocery store gift cards, toys and outfits for each child, non-perishable food items and anything else fun or creative you can think of. Please drop off items or hampers at the office by December 12.
CPC mainly serves women with unplanned pregnancies. They provide peer counselling for women in this time of acute distress. They also provide ongoing support through clothes, education, diapers and more. Though CPC does not provide or assist in arranging abortions, they provide help in other ministries like post-abortion grief counselling and a safe house for women fleeing abuse. For more information regarding their initiatives, please click here or visit optionscentre.ca.
