You did it! Your family and about 3,000 others have raised more than $44,000 through Hope Unlimited Family Care Center’s annual Baby Bottle Campaign. That’s about $10,000 more than last year. Thank you! We certainly can make a difference when we each contribute. Parents on both sides of the Ohio River will benefit, thanks to your efforts.
We would like to give a special thanks to: Lone Oak First Baptist Church, First Baptist Church in Paducah, as well as Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Golconda, IL for bringing in the most bottle money this year. Many generous businesses helped us, too. Customers at Midtown Market , Chick-fil-A Free-Standing and Pizza Inn, all in Paducah, gave the most.
Hope Unlimited Family Care Center distributes baby bottles Mother’s Day to Father’s Day each year. People fill bottles with cash, change and checks. Every penny supports and empowers moms and dads to grow stronger families.
Breaking news! The Community Foundation of Western Kentucky’s Fred Paxton Charity Challenge is doubling proceeds from our annual baby bottle campaign this year up to $10,000! Nearly 3,000 Illinois and Kentucky families took empty baby bottles to fill with change, cash or checks during our fundraiser between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Since Hope Unlimited Family Care Center doesn’t receive federal funds, what you give each year impacts how many moms and dads we can serve. This year, we’ve challenged you to raise $30 per bottle. The Charity Challenge match is open until August 31, so you still have time to see your dollars double.
Do you still have a baby bottle? That’s ok. Whether it’s empty or full, we ask you drop it off at your church or by one of our centers. You will help us be good stewards by returning all bottles. Thank you for giving a little to help a lot!
Given to Date: $34,500.
Top Three Churches: Lone Oak First Baptist – $3,250; First Baptist, Paducah – $2,933; and St. Francis de Sales – $1,766.
