Volunter Service Opportunity - March 20, 2014

3 to 5:30 p.m. @ Our Center

We are looking for a few volunteers to help us put together over 700 pieces of mail in preparation for our participation in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community! This is our biggest spring fundraiser. If you can help, call us at 243-6544. Students needing community service hours for school or religious formation are especially encouraged to volunteer!



We have a Community Aid bin in the parking lot of Bethel Assembly of God Church on Rt. 34 in Carlisle. As you enter the church grounds, the bin is in the back left corner.

For every pound of clothing donated, we receive 4 cents, which does add up!! This bin takes clothing only.

Counseling and Parenting Class Volunteers NEEDED!

Do you like helping people? Do you like kids? If so, then let us hear from you! We need people willing to work with our clients on a one-to-one basis to assist them with their pregnancy or family issues. A counseling background is not necessary, but a willing ear and compassionate heart are. Training is provided.

We also need people to help us watch the children of parents who are taking our free parenting classes at our center twice a month. We provide this service so the parents in need of advice and support can discuss their concerns in a stress-free environment without having to worry about taking care of their children. Middle and high school students are encouraged to volunteer. Anyone age 18 and over must undergo a security clearance, which is paid by our center. Anyone interested in helping out in these areas should call 243-6544.


Would your church or organization like to host a baby bottle campaign or baby shower for us? Both projects are easy to facilitate and you would be helping us continue our community outreach as well as promote awareness of your group as well. Loose change collected in baby bottles and shower items collected for our layettes help us support a new mother who has nothing for her baby. If you'd like to help us make a mom smile, call our center at 243-6544.


ATTENTION BUSINESSES, ORGANIZATIONS & CHURCHES! Would you be willing to partner with us & Community Aid by having a clothing donation bin on your property? Community Aid has offered to give us a portion of the proceeds generated from clothing donations received at these bins. This would require NO MAINTENANCE on your part! Community Aid would regularly service the bins. If you are interested, please contact Lori at 243-6544.

Thank You For Your Continued Support!

Help With Pregnancy Decisions

Pregnant, or Know Someone Who Is?

When a woman thinks she's pregnant, there are many things she might be feeling: joy, excitement, fear, sadness, confusion, panic, loneliness. Even in the best of circumstances, a pregnancy presents uncertainty. If you are pregnant or think you might be, we can offer you direction and support.

You are about to make some decisions that will have a profound effect on your life, your relationships, your emotional well-being, your body, and countless other aspects of your future. These decisions should be made only after you have learned as much as possible about your options. Educate yourself and choose what is best for you and your baby.
If you want free, confidential help for your pregnancy, call Carlisle Area Family Life Center.
