Monroe, WI – 3-30-2011 –ProLifeCorner – One of the many pregnancy centers in our area that is helping mothers and families in need is the Care Net Pregnancy Center of Green County located in Monroe, Wi. At this time they have a special need for cribs. Anna Anderson, director of the center, explains their special needs:
The Care Net Pregnancy Center of Green County is in urgent need of cribs and strollers. The Pregnancy Center always offered cribs on a “loaner” basis so the community has come to expect that they can send folks to the Center who need cribs. cribs of any age – new or gently used – will be accepted. If they do not meet safety standards because the slats are too far apart, a gentleman with carpentry skills will install additional slats so the cribs will meet the safety standards.
If you don’t have a crib of your own to donate, please consider picking one up at a garage sale or sometimes you will see them on sale bills from the storage shed places or call the Center (608-325-5051) if you see one listed somewhere.
Another option would be to make a monetary donation to the Center specifically designated for cribs. A volunteer who has a list of the recalled cribs is willing to go to garage sales in search of cribs for the Center.
