Offering hope and help to the community

-A A +A

The Hope Pregnancy Center has had a busy year.

“We’ve expanded our hours from 10 to 24 ee we’re also going to expand our office space in a new location (at the end of the month) to accommodate more clients,” executive director Sarah Taylor said. “We’ve hired a new client service administrator who oversees our in-house operation.”

But there is much more on the pregnancy center’s to-do list and to accomplish more, it needs the community’s help.

Therefore, the pregnancy center will host a banquet to kick off a fundraising campaign at 6:30 p.m. Friday at the White Rock Baptist Church.

The guest speaker will be Michelle Madrid-Branch, the founder of the AML (Adoption Means Love) Foundation and Adoption Tribe Publishing.

As an adopted child, Madrid-Branch will be discussing her own experiences during the banquet.

While the banquet is an opportunity to hear Madrid-Branch’s story, it also a chance for the center to begin collecting pledges for its campaign.

Taylor explained all the center’s funds come from individual donations as well as United Way of Northern New Mexico, Smith’s Earn and Learn and LA Cares.

The campaign, she said, will bring in the bulk of the money that is needed for next year. And there is a lot being planned for 2009.
