On October 7th from 10AM to 2 PM, Chester County's 40 Days For Life will sponsor their annual baby shower in front of Planned Parenthood, 8 S. Wayne St.

All baby items are welcomed, new and used up to size 4. Large size diapers sizes 4 & 5 are always in demand.

We walk with strollers in front of PP hopefully filling them with your donated items. Come join us if possible with or without a stroller. Alway, always, the more people in front of PP the less likely children will die.

If you are unable to join us in front of PP and are helping by collecting
items with in your friend and family circles, church or organization, I will be glad to pick up the items collected anytime. 484-832-2746

Dollar Store items are always in need also. This is a positive way to help young children become involved in a Pro-Life activity as everyone likes to shop for baby items.

Items collected are shared with Chester County Women Services, the Birthrights in West Chester and Coatesville.

All 40 Days groups are supportive of many different pregnancy centers as we cannot say "Don't " if we do not have alternatives to abortion.

Thank you in advance for your continual support in keeping 40 Days For Life viable in West Chester. Please, keep Planned Parenthood and all who enter through their doors in your prayers.
