Next Saturday is Run for Their Lives—KC’s 5k fundraiser at Shawnee Mission Park. There are 89 people registered to run/walk next week, but it is not too late to join them! Clickhereto register today!
As you know, Show Me 4 Life has been blessed with the request to display our current collection at the race. Although we will receive a portion of the moneys raised, Show Me 4 Life is not the only beneficiary. The other recipient is Advice and Aid Pregnancy Centers.
During my preparations for this fundraiser, I had the privilege to speak with one of Advice and Aid’s Directors of Client Services. This Christ-centered, life-affirming group is doing much to help mothers facing unplanned pregnancies. Here are some of the services they provide:
Pregnancy Testing Sonograms Adoption Referrals Parental Counseling Parental Support Group Emergency Food Pantry Post-abortive Counseling and Support
While speaking with the representative from Advice and Aid, I was impressed to hear how they not only assist pregnant mothers but also provide parental training and support for two years after the child’s birth! In addition, they have classes expecting mothers can attend to earn items they will need for their baby (i.e., diapers, clothing, and car seats). If the mothers have needs the pregnancy center cannot meet, Advice and Aid networks with local churches to see that the needs are met.
