5th Annual Bowl A Thon in support of Pregnancy Home


Council: 114 - BANGOR

Project Description:

It was suggested that we try to have a Bowl A Thon again this year in spite of Covid 19 looming all around, it was brought up to the Council at the Monthly Meeting and the vote was approved to host another Bowl A Thon in Support of the Shepherd’s Godparent Home, a crisis pregnancy home for unwed mothers and mothers to be. John Newcomb and Keith Forbes took charge of this event by getting that date established, and getting all the publisity, sign-up sheets made and distributed for sign-ups. Raffle tickets were made and sold in support of the event, solicitation letters were written and distributed to approximately 23 local business, many of which provided gift cards to be used as drawing awards in support of the event. We had 88 bowlers from all walks of life, from the All Saints School community, the Bowling League and many brother Knights and their families bowling. This massive effort providing much needed support of the Home, due to reduced funds being donated to the home from other agencies. These funds shall be used to help support the unborn, siblings and single women in crisis.The Shepherd’s Godparent Home was Founded in 1992, the Shepherd’s Godparent Home is a crisis center located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Bangor, Maine. They opened to residents in 2003, and the facility houses young women in their teens to thirties who are pregnant and in crisis.
Nikki’s Hope is a transitional program for new mothers who have resided in the home. Participants have the opportunity to gain independence, develop parenting skills, and mature their faith while residing in the program’s apartment.
In all $2,850.00 was collected, which provided a check to be presented to the Shepherd’s Godparent Home in the amount of $2,250.00.
