Friends for Life,
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Your support in prayer, action, and donation has blessed Project Defending Life tremendously. Because of you, we made Women's Pregnancy Options into a pregnancy medical clinic to provide life-saving ultrasounds! This accomplishment was no easy feat and required several leaps of faith by us and others to make this happen. We trained eight new volunteers to help with our increasing number of women and families served and expanding services (fatherhood program, Spanish parenting curriculum, and Positive Relationships program). Our 2nd Annual Gala raised over $115,000 due to your generosity! Thus far, we have had 18 saves from our Sidewalk Advocates team, 4 of them helped by our pregnancy clinic, and 13 turn-aways. We rejoice in seeing preborn babies saved and families receiving life-affirming support! We look forward to sharing more good news in the future, especially the full impact PDL made in 2019.
In the meantime, we want to partake in the season of Advent and Christmas by wishing you a Merry Christmas and share with you the joy of one of our volunteers who is being trained in ultrasounds!
Next year we will have more stories to share and opportunities for you to be involved. We can't wait!
**Please note, PDL will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, with abbreviated hours on December 26th. We will also be closed on New Year's Day. Otherwise, we are maintaining regular business hours.**
With Gratitude and Love,
Dominique Davis, President Sarah Judson, Vice President Cynthia Watts, Development Director Abigail Avalos, Client Services Director Jacquelyn Sena, Nurse Manager PDL Board and Volunteers
