Save The Date! Giving Tuesday is November 28, 2017


Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.

With all the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, two days focused on sales and big profits for retailers everywhere, why not wait until Giving Tuesday to give back to local causes that are important to you?

What is #GivingTuesday?
Giving Tuesday will be on November 28th this year. According to givingtuesday.org, it is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Our Goal
 Life Centers’ goal is to raise $9,000.

What are we doing with the money?
All of the money Life Centers raises on Giving Tuesday will go toward Baby Bundles. $60 pays for one Baby Bundle, and provides a mother with hope and confidence to keep her baby. $9,000 will provide 150 Baby Bundles to be given to expectant mothers right around the holidays.

What are Baby Bundles?
Baby Bundles consist of diapers, wipes, formula, clothes, blankets, and other necessities a new baby would need. Often times, the women who come into our centers fear they will not be able to provide for a new baby. These Baby Bundles give women hope. They show support. They save lives.

Popeyes Restaurants
This year, Popeyes has partnered with Life Centers for #GivingTuesday! The 14 local Popeyes restaurants will be donating one-third of our $9,000 goal. When you give, Giving Tuesday gives back! Popeyes is providing a coupon that you can download and use when you give to Life Centers on Giving Tuesday, November 28.

Your Pledge

Life Centers Announces New Center in Boone County
A new full-time pregnancy center will open in Lebanon this November.

Indianapolis, IN: Today, Life Centers announced they have signed a lease for a new center in Lebanon, Indiana. The address is 1208 North Lebanon Street, Lebanon, Indiana 46052.

The new center is in a central location across from Lebanon Memorial Park. It will be open 5 days a week to serve the community full-time. Life Centers would like to thank the churches and the community in Lebanon. Without their support, it would not be possible to open a center in Boone County. We deeply appreciate their continued support for our mission to save babies and change lives.

Life Centers’ Executive Director Tom Shevlot says, “We are excited to have a presence back in Boone County. Our previous center in Lebanon was only part-time, but we know that this new full-time center will serve one of the fastest growing counties in Indiana well. Now that this center is full-time, we can help support and provide resources to many more young women and families that need our services.” Life Centers’ previous Lebanon location closed in July of 2016 due to a fire.

So Thankful!

Life Centers receives many individual gifts during the year and we are thankful for them all. Every bit helps. Even just a baby bundle (which costs about $60) can make a huge difference. We want to take the time to share the impact of two recent grants that we received.

Kaleo is a group of women locally that have been stirred into action. Their mission is be the hands and feet of the Gospel. They recently presented us with a $10,000 grant to help us expand our post-abortive ministry soar (spiritually oriented abortion recovery). This grant will be used to promote the ministry throughout Greater Indianapolis, as well as expand the number of locations and participants. It will help facilitate more healing and freedom for those who have been wounded by abortion.

Grace Church has been a force in the community and faithful partner of Life Centers for years. Life Centers was once again the recipient of a generous grant. We received a $20,000 grant for the relocation of the Hamilton County center and for language assistance with non-English speaking clients. Because our landlord had put the Westfield location up for sale and notified us to vacate, we began looking for new location. We have a new location that has higher visibility and will allow us to be open full-time. The expenses related to moving (including build out, signage, furniture, first year’s lease, utilities and staffing) total around $100,000 and with Grace’s help and leadership, we are over 80% there.

The other part of Grace’s grant helps us meet the growing difficulties of serving clients that do not speak English. The money will be used for technology that will help us connect clients to volunteers that can interpret real-time at all of our centers.

Please know two things: First, we appreciate every gift that we receive and wish that we could publically thank each of you that has given to save babies and transform lives. Secondly, that we will use every dollar to thoughtfully and prayfully serve more and more women in Central Indiana facing pregnancy decisions.
