ProLifeCorner.com – Freeport, Il – 1-11-2014 – by Staff – Stephenson County Right to Life and the Freeport Knights of Columbus have launched a billboard campaign offering help to mothers in need. This program was started in late 2013 and already there are three signs in place.
The signs will typically have these elements: A positive message; for example “Adoption, the loving option”, “Take my hand not my life”, etc. Every sign will ask the simple question: “Pregnant, Need help?” and will give the number to a local pregnancy center. A sign placed in Stephenson County will list the Freeport Pregnancy Center; in Winnebago County it would list the Rockford Area Pregnancy Center.
HOW DOES A PREGNANCY CENTER OFFER HELP TO PREGNANT WOMEN?
Pregnancy centers offer help in many ways. They do pregnancy tests, they can do ultrasounds, they can help supply clothing for both mother and baby as well as most of the needs of a baby, for example, formula, car seats, blankets, diapers, the list goes on.
COST OF SIGNS
These signs require fairly small space. They can be freestanding and wall or fence mounted. They can withstand winds of 100 MPH and have a ten year durability.
Print costs for an 8 x 6 foot sign is $750, plus installation.
Print costs for an 8 x 8 foot sign is $1000, plus installation
Print costs for a 8 x 12 foot sign is $1500, plus installation
Installation cost for the smaller signs, material and labor, is $100 to $300 depending on installation type.
The 8 x 12 foot installation could require extra framework and the cost would run a little higher than the above figures.
THIS PROJECT IS GOOD FOR THE COMMUNITY
These signs are supplied by Cherry Signs of Freeport. All printing cost and labor will stay in the community.
We have been offered a dollar for dollar matching fund up to $4000. This offer lasts only until the end of February. This is a wonderful opportunity to get more signs in the ground.
