WOCC donates $2,000 to regional pregnancy centers

LIMA — The West Ohio Christian Chamber of Commerce donated to four regional pregnancy centers. The WOCC held a press conference Friday afternoon to present the checks to the organizations. The funding for the donations came from a recent Mother’s Day weekend Tea Party held by the chamber. The organization reportedly raised a total of $2,000.

“There were countless sponsors, donors and volunteers that were comprised of members and nonmembers,” Beckie Bear said. “Without every one of them is not possible — we are so honored to be able to provide opportunities to bring more centers together.”

The organization gave $500 to each non-profit organization.

The recipients are listed below:

• Heartbeat of Lima, Allen County

• Family Life Center, Auglaize County

• Elizabeth’s New Life Center, Shelby County

• Chasing Life Pregnancy Center, Mercer County
