June 9, 2011 // 0 Comments

Alpha Family Center will host its annual LifeWalk on Saturday, June 19 at 10 a.m. at Morley Park in Cedar Springs. LifeWalk is a chance for everyone to help young families and children in a very useful way. “For people who don’t have a lot of time, but are looking for a practical and fun way to put their pro-life beliefs into action, LifeWalk is the perfect opportunity,” said Lorrie Shelton, executive director of Alpha. Alpha Family Center is a nonprofit, faith-based pregnancy care center servicing hundreds in the West Michigan area. Last year, they were able to offer help and hope to over 1,590 individual families with over 18,000 free baby items given out. Their services include: pregnancy testing, peer counseling, community agency referrals, maternity clothing, and baby and toddler care necessities. They also provide accurate information on abortion, adoption, and sexually transmitted diseases, as well as parenting classes, sexual abuse, miscarriage and post-abortion support.
