August 26, 2018

Dear Father Fialkowski,

We would like to express our  gratitude to you, the families, and staff of Our Lady of the Wayside for participating in the 2018 Baby Bottle Project for The Women's Center. The total collected for this year's campaign came to a total of $7,318.31. This is a fantastic effort and we are truly grateful for everyone's generous support.


The Baby Bottle Project is our primary fundraiser and enables us to continue our efforts of saving moms and their babies from the tragedy of abortion. We are able to provide women with counseling, material goods assistance, pregnancy testing, ultrasounds and more. All of our services are free of charge!

To date, The Women's Center has saved over 39,000 babies and this has been made possible because we have been blessed with the support of so many wonderful souls like you and everyone involved from the parish.Thanks to you, we will continue in our efforts to promote a culture of life. Hopefully, with your prayers and assistance, we will see an end to abortion in our lifetime!

God Bless you,

Sincerely,

Lowell Wallace
Project Manager
