BLESSING BAG OUTREACH – FRIDAY, MAY 12, 2023
Ashland Pregnancy Care Center and the Gideons International Ashland Camp are partnering together for a fourth year to present the BLESSING BAG OUTREACH for expectant moms and mommies with babies (up to age 2) in the Ashland community.
To kick off Mother's Day weekend, on Friday, May 12th from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at First United Methodist Church Parking Lot (220 Sandusky St., Ashland) families can drive by and be presented a "blessing bag" filled with diapers (newborn - size 5), wipes, prayer blanket, personal hygiene items, and more. Limited supplies are available. Free baby food and formula will be distributed as well as other gifts from local businesses/organizations.
The women's auxiliary with Gideons International will be presenting Bibles to families and offering prayers for each mom who drives by for help. Rise FM Radio will also be in attendance providing encouraging music.
This event started in May 2020 in response to COVID-19 and wanted to turn a negative into a positive. Ashland Pregnancy Care Center and its team saw firsthand how families needed extra help with the necessities to care for a newborn.
The purpose of this event is to encourage moms and moms-to-be to remind them of their value and worth.
