Each month, Patriot Voices is focusing on a charity to support, and for the month of October, we are supporting Crisis Pregnancy Centers throughout the country.
Of course, this is heavy political season right now and you may ask, why would you focus on this now?
Well, I would argue why shouldn't we? As political candidates talk about the economy, national security, and our exploding debt - issues they no doubt should be focusing on - we at Patriot Voices want to remind them that we can't forget about the most vulnerable among us: the unborn.
Crisis pregnancy centers help expectant moms and dads learn about alternatives to abortion and how to cope with an unplanned pregnancy. They offer vital services to young mothers, and your support of the local crisis pregnancy center in your area can make a huge difference.
There are different crisis pregnancy centers across our country, so it is difficult for us to suggest which exact one you should support. Instead, we invite you to locate a center nearest you.
To help us support crisis pregnancy centers, we are asking you to do three things.
1. Go to this website and enter your zip code in the top right corner to find a crisis pregnancy center closest to you. [ Please note that we are providing this link to you for informational purposes only. We do not endorse any specific crisis pregnancy center which is listed.]
2. Call that center and ask them if they are accepting donations at this time. If yes, find out what they need (diapers, wipes, maternity clothes for moms, etc.) and then pick the item up and drop it off at the center.
3. If no donations are needed at this time, feel free to ask if you can volunteer or help in other ways. They will no doubt steer you in the right direction.
We hope you'll join us in this important effort. Crisis pregnancy centers are critical to our efforts to protect life, and since they usually operate solely on donations, helping them in this way can make a huge impact on their efforts.
Thanks and God Bless,
