The Women’s Center Bulletin Announcement for March 2014

  • March 5th marks the beginning of Lent. During Lent with sadness we contemplate the agony and death of Jesus, but we also think joyfully of His resurrection. Similarly, many women in unplanned pregnancies are troubled and sad. They come to The Women’s Center and receive help, counseling and prayers. They are filled with joy after they give birth and cradle their baby in their arms. In 2013 we saved over 1,000 babies and saved their mothers from the agony of abortion.
  • We have a great need for volunteer sonographers who are already certified or nurses trained in limited ultrasound. For information call Kathleen at 708-425-0707.
  • We need a strong Thursday Furniture Room volunteer from 10 am until 1 pm or 1 pm until 4 p.m. We also have an excellent opportunity for individuals or friends to work together. Volunteers are needed to clean baby bottles for reuse in our “spare change” fundraising, anytime Monday thru Friday between 10 am and 5 pm at our Chicago office. Email or call Jackie at 773-794-8807.
  • Baby diapers in sizes 1, 4 and 5 are needed. If you would like to host a diaper drive for us, call Jackie at 773-794-8807 or email
  • We are happy to pass on your used baby equipment to mothers who cannot afford to buy it. We have a need for 4 strollers, 2 double strollers, 2 bassinets, 4 bouncers, 5 pack n plays, 2 changing tables, 3 walkers and 5 infant car seats. A donation receipt for tax purposes is available. It will be a great help if you can deliver these to us. For our address, or if a pick-up by a volunteer is needed, please call 773-794-1313.

Feel free to call with questions or concerns!
