NOVEMBER 2021 GIVING GUIDE
"I wasn't sure where to turn, what people would think, or how I would find my way through. Thank you for your unconditional love and grace."
The Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre (CAPCC)vision is to be known and embraced by our community as a Centre that extends grace, provides education, and ongoing compassionate support before, during, and after pregnancy. Our programs and services are free*, confidential, and are offered in a safe and non-judgmental environment regardless of age, gender, race, or religion. We currently have Centres in Red Deer, Olds, Rocky Mountain House, Drumheller, and Stettler.
Being primarily privately funded, we rely on the generosity of our community to enable us to run our programs throughout Central Alberta successfully.
Here are examples of where the CAPCC may use your donation. All gifts are welcome and will go towards the operating funds of the CAPCC to allow us to continue to provide services. We appreciate the suggested donation amounts or any other amount you choose to give.
