Baby Bottle Fundraiser for Birthright

Birthright of Kokomo helps hundreds of women and babies each year with free services such as pregnancy tests, maternity clothes, and baby clothes. Birthright relies on donations from generous supporters and does not receive government aid.

Please help our local Birthright help mothers and babies for Christmas by taking a baby bottle coin bank home with you after Mass and filling it with your spare change between now and December 10.

Baby bottles are available at the entrances of the church. Please return your filled bottle by December 10.  Please place filled bottles in the purple boxes located at the entrances of the church.

Your donations will help our center get basic needs to mothers and babies in time for Christmas.  Thank you!!
