May 2015 Give Back Beautiful: Pregnancy Matters
At Eccentrics Boutique, we aspire to "Give Back Beautiful" to our community. We are excited to launch our newest campaign with a very important local agency: Pregnancy Matters. As a company that focuses on women, we also value family. Family is everything to us in this life. And we want to show that same support to those in our community.
Pregnancy Matters offers support to over 1,500 individuals and families in 12 different southern Illinois counties. Their medical staff includes a Medical Director to oversee free sonogram services. They also have volunteer nurses who gather medical histories from clients, provide patient education, and answer questions to assist in maintaining a healthy pregnancy. Their ultrasound technicians volunteer once a week to confirm a viable pregnancy and make referrals for prenantal care.
A list of their services include:
- Free pregnancy tests
- Ultrasound services
- Emotional support
- Confidential assistance
- Educational workshops for new and expecting mothers
- Financial counseling
- Follow-up calls
- Home visits (when requested)
Pregnancy Matters also offers donations to families in need:
- Prenatal vitamins
- Maternity clothing
- Baby supplies
- Infant clothing
- Diapers and wipes
- Baby equipment
- Bottles, formula and related items
Since many of us at Eccentrics Boutique have started our own families, we understand that it can be a very stressful and overwhelming experience. We are excited to spotlight this agency and do our part to help lighten the load of families with untimely pregnancies. On Saturday, May 30th, 2015, 20% of ALL SALES will be donated to Pregnancy Matters. We hope you will show your support and help us make this a great day for a great agency!
Stay Stylish and Give Back Beautiful!
