The Henry County Pregnancy Care Center is hosting its 28th annual Walk for Life at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, at Baker Park.
The Henry County Pregnancy Care Center is a group of Christians who have joined to assist women who are experiencing unplanned pregnancies.
The annual Walk for Life is one of the largest fundraisers each year for the center.
"We are against abortion as a solution, but also feel that being against something is not enough. We must offer positive alternatives," said executive director Janet Modjeski.
Pregnancy Care Center volunteers remember the Bible verse Jeremiah 1:5: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..."
The center's goal is to save the lives of unborn babies and to show each client that she and her child are cared for.
The non-denominational, not-for-profit Christian organization, provides free confidential services to all clients in need (regardless of age, race, religion, or marital circumstances). The Pregnancy Care Center is affiliated with the national organization, Care Net (Christian Action Council) and supported solely by donations from churches, businesses, organizations and individuals.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. at Baker Park. The begins at 9 a.m., followed by a continental breakfast.
Registration is $30 for adults and $5 for children to receive a free T-shirt.
This year's shirts are red, white and blue in honor of the 9/11 first responders.
The Henry County Pregnancy Care Center is not a political organization, an adoption agency or a medical clinic. The center offers services to aid women in all areas of their need.
Women visiting the Pregnancy Care Center can receive free pregnancy tests and guidance from trained volunteers. The support continues after the baby is born. The center provides just about anything an infant or child would need.
Families can receive diapers, formula and children's clothing that have been donated to the Pregnancy Care Center. Donors also bring in high chairs, cribs, car seats and strollers.
People can also support the Pregnancy Care Center by donating diapers (size 4-6) and Pull-Ups and, always, baby food.
The Henry County Pregnancy Care Center is located at 415 S. Main St., Suite A, New Castle. The center is open 1-5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
