CURRENT EVENTS

Baby Bottle Campaign

We make it easy for your church or group to support the Center through participating in a Baby Bottle Weekend simply by passing out empty baby bottles after your service/Mass/meeting. Weeks later collect bottles containing cash, checks or coins before your service/Mass/meeting.  Openings are still available for 2022. For information or to schedule a weekend, contact Gigi Harnden at (424)263-4855 or email gigiharnden@phctorrance.org.

Next Generation of Pro-Lifers

These enterprising kids prove that age is just a number when it comes to making a difference:

German Shepherd PuppyA 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.”
