Thursday night was the Pregnancy Care Center's annual Walk For Life. It's a fund raiser. Walkers sign up, get sponsors and then walk 2 miles. This year we had 56 walkers, 10 churches, and made over $5000!
The center has an annual budget of almost $100,000 USD. We do about 4 or 5 big fundraisers every year, and those fundraisers must bring about 1/2 to 2/3 of the annual amount we need (I'm guesstimating). It's amazing that the rest is all personal donations from people in the community. There are so many generous people in our towns and cities.
We tend to worry when a fundraiser falls short, or if there's a gap in the budget. God always pulls through, though - usually at the last minute - and saves the day.
We're provided for well.
