MOPSDay News: February 9th, 2016

VERITY (Pregnancy & Medical Resource Center) Collection:

It’s that time of year to start gathering and saving for our Verity Collection service project. They are in need of the following items, but will accept most baby items.

  • Wipes and Diapers- Newborn, size 4 & 5 are the most needed
  • Reusable grocery bags in happy designs (used to put together a gift for a needy mom)
  • Bath wash and Diaper bags
  • Boy and Girl baby clothes
  • Gender neutral newborn onesies (used for first small mom gift when life is chosen, to make it real!)

In 2015, Verity started a new program for testing for STI’s to enhance the services they offer. They also experienced 40% growth in overall client visits and a 25% increase in volunteer hours served. More than a dozen women were led to faith in Christ and more than 66 babies were saved from abortion.
