The Hartsville Community Pregnancy Center will be holding a fundraising garage sale on Saturday, June 13 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to help support the centre’s operations.
Located at 783 E. McMurry Blvd., the Community Pregnancy Center offers services such as free pregnancy tests, peer counseling, prenatal education, life skills classes, and education classes. children. All services provided by the pregnancy center are free for clients.
The center also has a well-stocked baby shop with diapers, clothing and more, all donated by members of the community. Customers can earn “points” to use in the store by participating in various courses.
Volunteers and other community members donated items for Saturday’s garage sale and there will be something for everyone.
“It’s a tremendous outpouring of generosity from the community,” said CPC director Peg Shonebarger, adding that everything will be half price from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The CPC is also planning its Baby Bottle Fundraiser, where participating churches and businesses can obtain empty baby bottles and return them filled with coins or money. Normally, this event would have happened from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, but the COVID-19 pandemic has forced a delay.
âWe are contacting church connections to see who is open. As soon as it looks like most of them are up and running, we’ll do the bottles, âShonebarger said.
The Pregnancy Center has also rescheduled its annual banquet to Monday, August 31 at 6 p.m. at the Creekside Fellowship Church in Castalian Springs. This event was scheduled for April but has also been postponed due to COVID-19.
