What is the Infant Car Seat Fund?
One of our local Gabriel Project ministry coordinators noticed a recurring unmet need for pregnant women in need within our community - infant car seats. Due to safety regulations, it is not appropriate to get these items used. However, the cost of purchasing a new infant car seat can be a huge hurdle for some women. With this in mind, the infant car seat fund was created so that women in need could access new car seats, by referral from Gabriel Projects or local community organizations or by calling our helpline to get connected.
How can I get involved with the Infant Car Seat Fund?
Host a BBQ: Gather your friends for a bbq, ask them for a suggested donation for burgers, and give any excess money (after covering your costs) to the car seat fund.
Host a Baby Shower: Gather your friends for tea, cake, and silly games - in lieu of baby gifts, ask them to bring a donation for the infant car seat fund.
Donate: Grab your chequebook, make out a cheque to "Guelph and Area Right to Life" and add this memo: "Infant Car Seat Fund" or donate online through our Canada Helps online campaign.
