Baby Bottle Campaign

posted Jul 1, 2018, 7:37 PM by Keith Biegert   [ updated Jul 1, 2018, 7:41 PM ]


Brothers,

 

The Baby Bottle Campaign to benefit Birthchoice will the weekends of July 14-15 and July 21-22 at St. Andrew’s Parish.  Council 6650 is teaming up with volunteers from the Respect Life Ministry to make this fundraiser a success.  2 volunteers are needed at each Mass on each of the 2 weekends.  

 

·        On July 14-15 you can go to the foyer of the church after their Communion.  You will distribute baby bottles as people leave Mass and for about 10 minutes after the end of Mass.  It will require about 20 minutes. 

 

·        On the following weekend, July 21-22, be in the foyer about 20 minutes before Mass begins to collect the baby bottles. 

 

This small gift of your time will enable Birthchoice to help pregnant women keep their babies rather than have an abortion.  Can you give 20 minutes?

 

A Sign-up Genius has been set up for this project.   Click on the link below and check the box for the date and time of the Mass you want.  Then click on the box at the bottom "submit and sign up".  If you aren’t able to use Sign up Genius please feel free to e-mail me and I will reserve your time.
