Baby Bottle Drive
Council: 13181 - SABATTUS
Each year the Sabattus Knight of Columbus Council #13181 joins the other Councils in our parish for a “Baby Bottle Drive”. For two weeks in January we collected donated baby items including clothing, diapers, bottles, playthings and even monetary donations. We do this before and after mass at each entrance to the church. Then, in a coordinated effort with the other Councils, we select a date and deliver these items together to Hope House in Lewiston, ME. Hope House provides food bank / thrift services for at-risk mothers. More importantly, they were the recent recipient of an ultrasound machine and provide pregnancy counseling to pregnant women and at-risk mothers. This has been an incredibly valuable service to the community to help mothers who might be struggling with their situation to make the choice for life and for the baby.
Knights from our Council that have participated in this include Robert Michaud, Dan Bouffard, James Daigle, James Ingalls, Don Champagne and Dave Devoe.
