Helping moms choose life for their babies and themselves

Fall 2018 Update

The work of Sav-A-Life Tuscaloosa would not be possible without the support of people like YOU! Check back here periodically to find out what is going on in our ministry, and how you can be a part of helping moms and dads choose life for their babies and themselves.

What’s been happening in our ministry?

  • On October 24th, we raised $66.50 at our Jason’s Deli benefit night. We are so grateful to Jason’s Deli for allowing us to hold a fundraiser at their restaurant. This was a fun and easy way for people of all ages to support our ministry. Be on the lookout for more restaurant fundraisers coming up in 2019!
  • We had a great turnout for our Iron Bowl Banquet on November 5th. We cannot thank you all enough for attending, praying, and supporting Sav-A-Life. If you were not able to make it, or if you would like more information on something you heard about at the banquet, we’d love to answer any questions you have. Stop by our center anytime, call or text us at 205-759-5433, or email savalifetuscaloosa@gmail.com.

Upcoming Events:

We still have some awesome events and fundraisers coming up that we hope you will consider being a part of! None of the things we do would be possible without the support, donations, and prayers of you all.

This event will be held at Ridgecrest Baptist Church from 6 to 9 PM both nights. We hope you’ll stop by to pick up some fun Christmas gifts.

Each family currently involved in our Earn While You Learn parenting program will receive a bonus $25 gift certificate to be used on baby items, clothes and shoes of all sizes, toys, books, household items, kitchenware, bedding, etc. This event was a huge success last year, and we are excited to provide our clients with this opportunity again.

Prayer Needs:

  • As you know, our center is constantly under attack from the enemy, but even more so lately as it is affecting the health of our staff and volunteers. Please pray that the enemy will not prevail so that we may continue to serve our clients effectively.
  • Pray for more dads to get involved with our fatherhood programs, and pray for godly men to answer the call to serve these dads.
  • Pray that we may be able to make connections with new churches and groups so we can spread the word about Sav-A-Life throughout our community.
  • Pray for more volunteers (both men and women) to get involved at our center. We have tons of volunteer opportunities, including working with clients, organizing baby items, filing, writing thank you notes, counting change from Baby Bottle Boomerang, and much more!
  • Pray daily for the moms and dads who receive our services. Pray for our staff and volunteers who work tirelessly in making sure our clients receive the very best resources.

How YOU Can Get Involved:

  • Become a volunteer
  • Participate in Baby Bottle Boomerang (check out the BBB Tab on our website for more info!)
  • Have your church fill a Pack ‘N Play with baby items
