The Bishop Carroll Lady Huskies recently hosted a “Basketball for Babies” night at their home game against Westmont Hilltop. In lieu of an admission fee, attendees were asked to bring various items and cash donations to benefit Birthright of Johnstown.
The community was able to raise $1524 towards the cause. Junior Lady Husky Caroline Golden was instrumental in the event. She commented, “As a Catholic school, we feel the need to help those who need it most, especially when we are able to do so. This is a gift that we were able to give through playing basketball, a game that brings everyone together.”
The team is grateful to all who participated and encourage more to reach out to Birthright to make additional donations. Caroline added, “Especially during the Christmas season, it is important to look where people need the donations the most and Birthright is a worthy cause.”
Birthright is available to women for as long as they need us. We offer love, friendship, and support to women who are pregnant or think they may be pregnant. Birthright is interdenominational and is not involved in any political activities, or lobbying. Birthright’s focus is on loving the mother, reminding her that there is hope and ensuring she is not alone. (from https://birthright.org/johnstown).
