Newman Center are co-sponsoring a service project.
Beginning now and wrapping up in August, we are hosting
a drive to collect supplies and gift card (Walmart and
Target) contributions to benefit MiraVia.
MiraVia is a safe haven for pregnant mothers and their
children. Their Belmont Abbey College-based residence
is a place where pregnant college students can live and
learn with each other.
The residents at MiraVia’s Outreach Center receive professional
assistance and material donations both during
pregnancy and after their baby is born.
They need typical items for babies, including diapers,
baby wipes, bibs, blankets, and pajamas among other baby
supplies. Thank you for your generosity!
