Thank you to everyone who participated in the Baby Bottle Blessings campaign!  We are so grateful as the filled bottles make their way back to our ministry ensuring that we are able to serve the next group of women and men facing unplanned pregnancies in our community.

Did you know that we check each baby bottle three times to do our best to make sure nothing is missed? With more than 10,000 bottles that is no small task. The first step is removing all the change, cash and checks from the bottles.  We had over 30 volunteers from several different churches working on this step just on the day after Father’s Day.  First Southern National Bank hosted the efforts that day and provided great support in processing the blessings. During the second step, volunteers take the bottles that have been emptied, check them again for anything that was missed, and begin the process of preparing them for next year’s campaign. Those bottles will be checked a third time by yet another volunteer group that will finish the preparation for reuse.

Here are a few pictures of volunteers in action.  Thank you to all who help each step of the way!
