Fayette County is overwhelmingly blessed with a multitude of giving church families. Since its conception, the Pregnancy Center has also been surrounded by this generosity. In this spirit, The Knights of Columbus, Council 5386 of Saint Colman Parish, kicked off a baby bootie campaign this weekend.
The goal is to purchase a four dimensional ultrasound machine. The average cost of this type of cutting-edge technology is $93,000. Because of the Knights’ robust support for life at the national level, they can purchase this equipment at the wholesale price of $57,000. In addition, the International Knights are committed to matching the local Knights Council donations for these units, up to 50 percent. This equates to getting a $93,000 4D ultrasound for just $28,500.
Other local churches are joining this ecumenical effort to raise funds for this project.
This state-of-the-art ultrasound will enable a woman to visualize her baby’s image and heartbeat in high resolution. This enhanced view will provide accurate medical information to aid in the decision-making process.
The Pregnancy Center is dedicated to providing this technology for the best-informed decision at no cost to a woman during an unexpected pregnancy. This support, plus practical assistance during pregnancy and parenting is available, no matter the hardship or circumstance.
If interested in donating toward the ultrasound campaign, send a donation payable to The Knights of Columbus Ultrasound, C/O St. Colman Church, 219 S. North St. in Washington C.H. The Knights are grateful to those who support this outreach individually or through their church. Your generosity will definitely be matched and multiplied.
