SETON SCHOOL WIDE SERVICE PROJECT

In conjunction with Respect for Life Month during October, our school is partnering with Community Pregnancy Clinics (CPCI) in Collier County.   This organization provides many support services for mothers and babies in need, including pregnancy health services, counseling, crisis intervention, prenatal classes and material support.  Our partnership with CPCI offers an opportunity to support a culture of life by contributing to help many families in the area who have minimal resources.

A development coordinator from CPCI spoke with all students today and middle school students had a brief tour of the CPCI’s mobile clinic.  Each class was given a Baby Bottle Bank to collect money throughout the month of October.  Additionally, there are donation bins in the Parish Center to collect baby items such as diapers, wipes, baby wash/shampoo, and new or gently used baby clothes in sizes newborn through 5T.

See the flyer for more information.  Your generosity in supporting this worthy service project is most appreciated.
