BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A Baton Rouge pro-life organization will hold a baby supply drive at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Louisiana Black Advocates for Life will host the event at Lighthouse Christian Fellowship Church until 3 p.m. Supplies including diapers, wipes, and formula will be given out to families in need. LABAL asks that families register before they arrive.
“Often moms are faced with significant challenges of how to afford caring for their babies. The goal of this event is to make sure that these moms know that they are not alone and that they have a community of support and services waiting to help them when they need help the most. As a mother of six children, I know first-hand how difficult at times caring for a newborn can be,” LABAL State Director Tara Wicker said in an official press release.
Louisiana State University athletes, Southern University athletes, and Lighthouse Christian Fellowship Church are volunteering to host the event.
“Without opportunities to work, and struggles with transportation, many moms can feel hopeless, often without knowledge and information on what may be available”. We are here to give them hope and help while caring for the most precious citizens of our community,” Wicker said.
The church is located at 1564 Nicholson Drive.
