The Baby Bottle Campaign is a month long fundraising campaign. Church attendees may take home a baby

The Baby Bottle Campaign is the second largest fundraiser for the center. The funds raised will directly benefit the clients we serve and have a lasting impact on families in the River Valley and surrounding areas.
