Showers of Blessing
On July 22nd, Hope for Life, the pro-life ministry in Hope Chapel, held a baby shower for the Center's clients. Hope Chapel has been an active partner to the Center, and this baby shower is just the latest demonstration of their compassion for pregnant mothers in need. We are so blessed and grateful to have their generous support!
Knights in Shining Armor
In true knightly fashion, the chivalrous Knights of Columbus Council #1990 organized a Fish Fry on March 11th and donated the proceeds to the Pregnancy Help Center. They also donated an additional $500 to help cover the cost of ultrasound training for one volunteer nurse. The Center is so blessed and grateful for the Knights' generous support!
Forerunners for Christ Run for Life
Forerunners for Christ, a ministry at Calvary Chapel South Bay, organized a Run for Life on 10/30/2021 at Wilson Park in Torrance. The group’s co-leader, Cindy Salvador was inspired by the Texas Heartbeat Law and wanted to raise money for a local pro-life pregnancy center.

Next Generation of Pro-Lifers
These enterprising kids prove that age is just a number when it comes to making a difference:
A teenage donor, and Walk for Life regular, made a generous gift of $500 to the Center. He raised the remarkable sum after his German Shepherd had puppies and the family decided to adopt them out. He generously chose to give the money earned back to God by donating to the Pregnancy Help Center, one of his favorite nonprofits.
Three siblings, Norah, Matthew, and Judah, raised $400 for the Center by running a 5K hosted by their homeschool co-op . According to Norah, they chose to support the Pregnancy Help Center because, “We want to use our physical abilities to help others see how God loves and treasures babies in their mother's womb, and how precious that life is to Him.”
Homemade ube ice cream was sold at Ricky's purple cream stand from which he donated 75% of the proceeds. Ricky said, "I was inspired by my choice to help the Pregnancy Help Center because I want to help expectant mothers and their babies, and I helped my church raise donations for them a couple of years ago (through a baby bottle fundraiser)."
Nathan and Alynna set out a special donation jar for the Center at their lemonade stand. Their mother shared, "We have loved the Pregnancy Help Center through our church for many years and have friends who are active in volunteering there. However, the organization came to mind again as a loved one was able to use your services over the summer."
