A Better Choice is a a Catholic Crisis Pregnancy Center that helps young women who are facing the possibility of an unexpected pregnancy offering free pregnancy tests, crisis phone counseling, sonograms, information and benevolence assistance. To some of the 260 young women who come to ABC each month our voice is the only time they hear a message of unconditional love and support. Volunteering can be through direct contact with the young women we help or in other areas. There is plenty of God’s work to be done. Help is also needed with scrapbooking events, paper product drives, baby showers, pro-life garage sales, cabinet building, lawn mowing or maintaining the ﬂowers in the prayer garden. If I haven’t mentioned something that interests you, please tell me your ideas. You let us know how often and when you can help. Maybe it’s weekly, monthly or once in a blue moon. That’s OK! We love our volunteers.
