To keep our members and communities safe, our in-person community support events have been post-poned this year due to COVID-19.
We still want to find ways to highlight and support ongoing initiatives in the area though! Check out the opportunities below to support women, local businesses, and groups we support.
As a part of our WBC ladies walk on Saturday, April 10th (meeting at Meadowbrook Park's Playground Pavilion), we are supporting the Pregnancy Resource Center of Champaign. They are caring, compassionate professionals who donate their time to provide confidential resources to women who are pregnant, or have been pregnant. These resources include pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, STI testing, mentoring, and/or referrals within the community for support. There is also a residential center next door to the clinic called Merci's Refuge for those who are in crisis, or for women & children in need of emergency shelter. You will have an opportunity to get materials, ask questions and/or donate the morning of our event.
If you'd like a tour of the PRC Clinic and Merci's Refuge, they are hosting an open house the following weekend on Saturday, April 17th from 8:30-10 where you can see the programs offered. Steve Tarrant State Farm is sponsoring this program, and if you stop by on April 17th, you'll get a free goodie bag.
