Sacramento Life Center Raises $90,000 For Low-Income Pregnant Women Through Recent Fundraisers
SACRAMENTO – The Sacramento-area community came together to raise $90,000 for the Sacramento Life Center through three fundraisers this spring: the Baby Bottle Project, Mother’s Day Rose Sale and Walk for Life. The fundraisers benefited the group’s free medical services for low-income pregnant women and teens through its clinics, as well as for its resource referral program and support services.
“Raising $90,000 is proof that this community cares about low-income pregnant women and teens and wants to ensure they have the resources and support system they need to become mothers,” said Marie Leatherby, executive director, Sacramento Life Center. “We are grateful to this community for being part of that support system for moms.”
The Walk for Life at the end of May, which partnered with Alternatives Pregnancy Center, raised $15,000 for the Sacramento Life Center. The Mother’s Day Rose Sale, which takes place at dozens of local churches each year, raised $20,000. The Baby Bottle Project, which occurs annually at local schools, churches and more in March and April, raised $55,000.
The group is now preparing for its annual Salute to Life Dinner and Auction in November, which brings together more than 600 community members for the Sacramento Life Center’s largest fundraiser of the year.
