Family Ministries’ Hope Center receives donation from Mosheim Elementary

What started as a class project to teach students about being a part of something greater became an entire school initiative to help the Hope Center. This school-wide supply drive for the Hope Center included collecting diapers, wipes and baby clothes along with anything else needed to care for a baby. The estimated total collected for this Christmas miracle was $2,250.
Pamela Reedy, CDC teacher at Mosheim Elementary School, started a class tradition last year, organizing a supply drive to benefit a local non-profit. Reedy and her class enjoyed it so much she decided to do it again this year with a drive to benefit the Hope Center.
The Hope Center is a crisis pregnancy and resource center located on Tusculum Boulevard and an entity of Family Ministries. The center exists to serve the needs of those who may find themselves in a crisis pregnancy, as well as having resources available for mothers who need help in caring for their young children, such as diapers, baby wipes, clothing, etc. These resources include a 24-hour HOPEline, education about alternatives to abortion and fetal development, limited ultrasounds for the abortion-minded client, information on adoption and alternative homes, post-abortion counseling, as well as parenting and nutrition classes that are a part of the “Earn While You Learn” program. The Hope Center is completely supported by private donations from churches, businesses, civic organizations and individuals.
“It was such a pleasure organizing this supply drive for our local pregnancy center, the Hope Center,” Reedy said. “What we did was a blessing to them, but even more of a blessing for all of us that participated.”
Once word spread about what Reedy and her class were doing, it quickly turned into a school-wide project with a competition between all the classes at the school. The classes collected items for about a month, and the class that collected the most was rewarded with a pizza party.
