Life Outreach Diaper Drive

To the editor:

The Life Outreach Center in Hancock would like to thank everyone who participated in our Diaper Drive that we held in December. A special thank you goes out to the following churches who served as collection sites: SS Peter and Paul Lutheran, St. Albert the Great, St. Anne’s of Chassell, Glad Tidings, Hope Fellowship, Church of The Resurrection, St. Francis of Assisi, Bethany Baptist, First Baptist of Calumet, Sacred Heart of Calumet, St. Paul The Apostle, Our Lady of Peace, St. Joseph’s of Lake Linden, L’Anse United Methodist, Sacred Heart of L’Anse, St. Ann’s of Baraga, Most Holy Name of Jesus of Assinins, and United Lutheran of L’Anse. I pray that I did not omit any of the churches. If I did, I sincerely apologize, and please let us know. Thank you also to the Keweenaw Family Resource Center for giving us some of their extras that they collected. A very special thank you to ALL that donated diapers/wipes for our clients. We collected roughly 7000 diapers and 65 packages of wipes! Without your help, we would not be able to continue to provide such needed items available for our clients babies.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that came out to our Open House that was held in January at our new location in Hancock. Many people came to look at the Center, see and hear about the free resources we have to offer to our clients, meet our board members and volunteers, enjoy some great goodies and interact with community members. A big thank you to Ben and Kim Campioni of Pat’s Foods for the donation of the delicious cake. Congratulations to the following for being the winners of the give-aways: Pampering Basket–Karla Anderson, Toddler Basket–Jean Pemberton, Newborn Basket–Donna Clawson. Thank you to all that put together this great event, all who attended and to those that blessed us with donations. We are incredibly grateful for your continued support of our ministry!
