Three local pregnancy care centers were the beneficiaries of donated baby items through the WBCL Radio Network’s local Likewise Project 2004.

WBCL staff members, along with the staff and volunteers at the pregnancy care centers, spent two weeks in May at various locations throughout Indiana and Ohio collecting new baby items. A total of 2,156 new items were donated and divided between the three centers.

The three care centers involved in the project were: A Hope Center at Prime Time in Fort Wayne, Community Pregnancy Centers of Northwest Ohio in Bryan and Defiance, OH and Heartbeat of Lima in Lima, Ohio.

The mission behind WBCL’s Likewise Projects is stated in Luke 10-the story of the Good Samaritan who cared for the wounded traveler who was beaten and left for dead on the roadside. Observing the Good Samaritan’s attitude and kindness toward a stranger in need, Jesus instructed the onlookers to “go and do likewise.”
