GATE Pregnancy Center received a new ultrasound machine at its Concord location.
The ultrasound was given by Psalm 139 at the pregnancy center. Psalm 139 also donated $10,000 to help train medical personnel.
The pregnancy center had been closed during the COVID pandemic, but was busy before that. The center recently moved into the former S&D retail store at 280 Concord Parkway S., Suite 119. The pregnancy center renovated the space in 2021. The move gave the center more space and a location for the ultrasound.
The Concord store is open Monday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Donna Oliver, development associate at the GATE Pregnancy Resource Center, said the Concord site recently went medical in 2021, which includes offering ultrasound. The Harrisburg site has offered ultrasounds for some time.

Oliver said the center works as an alternative to abortion.
The GATE Pregnancy Resource Center opened in November 2006 in Harrisburg. It then expanded to its Concord location in 2017. The Concord location later became part of the Cabarrus Dream Center. Although the center has moved to Suite 119, it is still part of the Dream Center.
The center also has a shop where parents can buy items for their children, such as clothes, bottles, baby baths, bassinets, toys, blankets, shampoo, diapers and formula. Store items come from community donations. For those wishing to donate items, call the center to schedule a drop-off time or bring items all day on Wednesdays.
