Notes:
We have not participated in the Life Chain in October for the past 2 years. This was moved from LaGrange to 159th St west of Harlem due to construction on LaGrange. Typically, we had very low participation (0-5 participants) We have not supported PASS (Pregnancy Aid South Suburbs) for the past few years due to our support of Journey Hub. I can share their events for those interested.

We supported Journey Hub’s Fall Gala in 2015. It is a new event that will take place every other year.
