At the beginning of the month I was able to participate in the Steps4Life event with the Women’s Pregnancy Care Clinic of Whittier. You might have heard me mention this clinic before. I like to donate my time and services to this clinic regularly.
I’m in La Mirada and Whittier is just the neighboring city so I feel that just like shopping local is a good thing, so is donating our time, resources and money to local organizations. We need places where women can go for resources, support, encouragement and education during a time of uncertainty, anxiety and possible fear. I love the heart behind the clinic because I know the individuals who help run it. They love the women and families who walk in their doors, I have seen it.
Every year WPCC (Women’s Pregnancy Care Clinic of Whittier) puts on an event called the Walk 4 Life. Over the last 2 years they have changed it up and created Steps4Life to help educate the participants during hands on interactive stations that shine a light on what women might go through when faced with an unplanned crisis pregnancy. You can see more about it on their website at WPCC Steps4Life.
I was not the event photographer as Sharyn from At Play Photography was taking care of that, but I was able to set up a booth space to show case my company and work. See, just like I believe in supporting local businesses and organizations the clinic believes in giving back to the community too, not just to the women that come through their doors.
If you missed out on the event in Whittier, not to worry, they put on another Steps4Life for their Pasadena clinic but in the fall. Make sure to sign up for their newsletter so you don’t miss out on that information and other events.
And because I don’t always get to have all my work displayed, I took the opportunity to photograph our booth with some close ups.
Here’s a link to make it easy for you Tink & Winston 🙂
What organizations do you love supporting? I’d love to hear!
