A community service for those in need: Pregnancy Care Center

As a board member of the Crescent City Pregnancy Care Center, I have witnessed the hard work and dedication of the staff and volunteers. They do it for the love of human life; the mothers and the unborn children. I would like to add here that the Pregnancy Care Center does not perform, recommend, or refer for abortions. They are strictly for life. Anyone can come to the center who is looking for help, regardless of economic situation.

Since the opening of the facility at Washington and Northcrest, 2,641 clients have visited, which is an increase from the former location. The new building and location are inviting and professional.

Currently, the PCC offers pregnancy tests, prenatal and parenting education, and post-abortion healing classes. We also intend to offer a 24/7 dad's class, sexual integrity class, and the life of faith class for 9- to 12-year-olds. Assistance with items such as diapers, formula, baby clothes, shoes, cribs, strollers, etc., are also offered.

The Pregnancy Care Center is a community service organization designed to help those in need. We invite anyone who has a heart for the unborn and their mothers to stop by and see what we are all about. Should anyone be interested in being a volunteer or counselor, etc., we welcome them.

On behalf of the board and staff, I would like to publicly give a huge thank you to all who have been so generous in giving, both time and finances. Not long ago, Randy Hall, a professional landscaper, transformed the area around the PCC facility. Randy and his crew did everything at their own expense. Thank you to every one of you.

We also want to thank every person who made our annual fundraising banquet a success this year. All the volunteers and sponsors who gave so generously cannot be thanked enough. You are appreciated.

Family Movie Night generates unique community spirit feeling

The Del Norte Family Resource Center held Family Movie Night twice in November and each event hosted around 70 guests!

Family Movie Night wouldn't have been possible if not for the generosity of the Tobacco Use Prevention Program and Crescent Ace Hardware.

We are doing things a little differently on Dec. 4. Hot dogs will be sold before the event, two for $1, and free snacks will be available during the movie. Please call us at 464-5500 for details.

If you haven't attended a Family Movie Night at the Del Norte Family Resource Center, you're missing out.

Families from all over the county gathered together, generating a feeling of community spirit that is wholly unique! Thank you for coming and we hope to see you again!
