Crib Project

The “Crib Project 2017” absolutely showed the “giving spirit” of this parish. The generosity of our parish overwhelmed the staff at the Pregnancy Care Center in Drexel, NC. Their exact quote was, “Thank you, is not enough for all of the generosity shown for the needy mothers of Burke County”.

The crib and the 10 baskets of baby gifts were delivered the morning of May 15, 2017. There was great rejoicing at the Center. The Ladies Guild would like to say “thank you” to everyone who helped make this crib project a great success. If you have any
questions about the Pregnancy Care Center please call Donna Davis at 828-584-8985.
