Be a Partner in Our Ministry - Opportunities to Help
New Life Pregnancy Resource Center is truly blessed by your faithful giving. We continue to fight in the battle for the lives of this generation.
Through the generous partnership of our ministry friends we are able to provide free pregnancy tests, parenting and life skills classes, a mom's support group, and a layette ministry which serves young families, and mothers of the unborn. In addition to these services we also offer clients opportunities for earning material items such as new baby furniture, car seats, strollers, disposable diapers, personal hygiene products, baby formula/food (when available) and new/used clothing for pregnant mothers and infants/toddlers up to size 2T.
One-time donations, or monthly donations, can be made in the form of a check and mailed or delivered to our center at this address:

Hospital Layette Gift Bags - Community Outreach
Our volunteers prepare bags full of necessary items for the care and clothing of newborns. A pretty bow ties up each bag and they are delivered to Otsego Memorial Hospital.
These gift bags are presented, by maternity ward nurses, to needy mothers and their newborn before they are discharged from the hospital.
and many of the items in these layette bags are "showered" on the center through Baby Showers which are hosted by local churches, small groups, or civic clubs.
The Baby Showers are enjoyable social times for guests, who bring along an unwrapped baby gift for the pregnancy center.
If your group is interested in hosting a baby shower for New Life Pregnancy Resource Center, please call our office for more information.
New Life Pregnancy Resource Center is always ready to welcome the participation of groups who want to host a Baby Shower for the Center.
This is a wonderful community outreach project for your church, small group, or class.
Please call the center to set a date for your group. Our director would be delighted to attend your event and share information about our ministry with your Baby Shower guests.
If you enjoy handcrafting projects, we could use hand-sewn and/or handmade:
Newborn flannel mitts
Quilts &/or Knitted and Crocheted
