The 4th Annual Walk for Life, Sat., May 18th at the Assembly of God in Mason City was a great success with over $1,200 raised to support Living Alternatives: Pregnancy Resource Center in Lincoln. We thank the 15 who raised pledges and walked for life! All who donated items for the bake sale, silent auction, made pledges or came and purchased items are appreciated for making this event a success. A special thants to the following in the business community who donated products and services for the auction: Arlee Theater (John & Gaye), City Video (Mark Leinweber), and Knoles Gardens & Greenhouse (Ken)!
The Pregnancy Resource Center has been providing services to the young people of our area since 1989, offering a variety of services, including pregnancy tests, caring support, prenatal health education, parenting education, adoption information, post abortion help, practical assistance and more. They also have a clothing room with maternity and baby clothing, and diapers are available on an emergency case basis. This ministry is making a difference in many lives and families and is a great resource of help for our community as well. We are already planning another walk for next year to help raise support for their continuing needs.
