Or more accurately, the 750 families receiving ongoing aid from Birthright, and the 750 families receiving occasional aid, need our help.
Beside the obvious assistance of formula, diapers, etc, Birthright aids families in accessing benefits through government programs such as PCAP (Prenatal Care Assistance Program), WIC (Women, Infants, Children) and CAP (Community Action Programs).
The last two Birthright offices in Westchester and Putnam (Peekskill and Carmel), need to raise $35,000 by the end of June.
To help out, you can mail your tax deductible donation (payable to "Birthright") to:
P.O. Box 338, Mohegan Lake, NY 10547
P.O. Box 478, Carmel, NY 10512
Also, there will be a benefit concert by Katy Feeney (guitarist/ harpist who sang for Pope John Paul II, John Cardinal O'Connor and Fr. Benedict Groeschel CFR, among others) on Sunday, June 13th, at 3PM, to be held at the Church of St. Denis in Hopewell Junction (602 Beekman Rd.).
Please help Birthright! If they are not there to help 1,500 families, who else will?
