Whatcom County Pregnancy Clinic - Stock the Earn-While-You-Learn Store
Who are we serving?
Anyone concerned about a possible unplanned pregnancy
Who is helping connect us to their needs?
The Whatcom County Pregnancy Clinic is a nonprofit medical clinic in downtown Bellingham that offers information, pregnancy tests and related services that are free, accurate and confidential. Every woman has the right to caring, personal support in a comfortable environment when considering an unplanned pregnancy. WCPC offers information on options with the aim of helping women find hope for a positive future.
They also provide parenting programs for new moms with incentives from the Earn While You Learn Shop. They host a wonderful abortion recovery group and also offer mentoring. The Relate program sends trained presenters into schools to talk about healthy relationships and sexual risk avoidance.
How are we serving?
As a group, reach into your network of friends, co-workers, neighbors to collect three “always in demand” items to support moms (and babies) going through the parenting education program. This is a great way to start conversations about what God and his people are for, instead of what they are against. The things you provide will stock our Earn While You Learn program so that moms who choose life and are learning to be a responsible parent can earn points (“baby bucks”) to spend in our shop. The items new parents need the most are:
- Diapers, ALWAYS in short supply Size Newborn and often size 3
- Baby Wipes
- $5, $10 Gift cards to Target or WalMart – for special formula or prenatal vitamins
Who do you contact?
Contact Doddie Honrud Community Development Director firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-671-9057 to let her know you have items to drop off. Set up a time for at least a couple of people to drop them off and get a quick tour of the clinic!
