Women’s Resource Center hosting 2023 Baby Bottle Boomerang Drive

Every January, the Women’s Resource Center in Gulfport hosts a Baby Bottle Boomerang Drive to help fund the services the nonprofit clinic offers.

The center supports those facing unplanned pregnancies and their babies, from free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds to getting help with baby resources or prenatal and parenting classes.

Any business, church, or person wanting to participate in the drive can be provided baby bottles to collect change in and return by March 31st.

Last year, the clinic was able to raise $14,000 through the drive, but this year they are hoping to raise $25,000. Executive Director Susan Kremer Jones said, “Without this money this is honestly from January to March, this is the largest fundraiser we have and every single dollar we have here is given to us by individuals, businesses, or churches. We don’t receive any federal or state funding. So, it’s really critical for us to have this state program.”

Along with donating change, there’s also a website to make donations at wrcgulfport.org/babybottle.
