“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”

John Bunyan

Where do the funds go?

There are many ways to look at the cost of our program, but I think the best way is to think about the benefit to the client.  When you make a monetary gift, it goes into the general fund to be used where it is most needed.

Cost for upcoming classes to address the obstacles to LIFE that our patients face:  $14,731.52

Cost for one Patient to attend the program:  $1,473.15

Cost for one mom to choose LIFE until the baby’s first birthday:  $1,589.42

Cost to support one mom who just needed help for 18 months: $1,045.78

Provide formula and diapers for one mom for a year:  $600.00

Help one mom choose LIFE:  $543.66

Provide food for our patients for the whole year:  $223.10

Provide one hour of support:  $58.10

Provide formula and diapers for one month:  $50.00

Food for one month:  $18.60

    You are so generous!

    As many of you know, Lifeline of Berks County operates out of a very small building. Right now, we have a large amount of clothing donations and cannot take anything else until June 1, 2023. We are bursting at the seams with clothing! We have a large amount of diapers as well thanks to the generosity of our churches for the Giving Tree program. We appreciate your gifts to us and look forward to accepting items again for our clients after June 1st.

    For other items, call for an appointment to bring them to the center. That way, someone will be free to assist you in bringing items in. They can also tell you where to park so unloading will be a snap! Do NOT leave items on our porch, though. We have overactive squirrels and pigeons and they like to make messes.
