Councilman Matthew Moench is sponsoring a holiday charity drive for the next few weeks to benefit the Raritan Pregnancy Aid and Information Center on Thompson Street in Raritan.
“I would like to do this during the holiday time, sponsor a drive for items the center might want,” Moench said at a recent township council meeting.
The Pregnancy Aid and Information Center opened 30 years ago, and is an all-volunteer organization that is dedicated to helping pregnant women.
“For three decades, the Raritan Pregnancy Aid Center has tirelessly served Bridgewater, Raritan and surrounding communities, supporting women who have made the choice to bring a new life into this world, but who lack the necessary resources,” Moench said in a release about the center. “The Pregnancy Aid Center supports these women and their families through education, care and providing for their needs. This worthy organization needs our help in continuing its important work.”
A bin will be set up at the Bridgewater Township Clerk’s office on Commons Way between Dec. 3 and Dec. 21, and those interested in helping can drop off items to be donated to the center.
The items that are most in need include diapers, baby wipes, baby wash, diaper rash cream, baby bottles, sippy cups and Similar formula advanced.
“The holiday season is about family, love and generosity,” Moench said in the release. “I encourage residents to consider supporting the Raritan Pregnancy Aid Center that gives so generously to new and expectant mothers and their families in their time of need.”
