Annual Update: Pro-Life Organization Celebrates Successful 2023 under Board President’s Leadership

Moose Jaw Right to Life experienced a successful year in 2023, as acknowledged by the board president, Jean Landry. Supporters and volunteers played a vital role in helping the organization achieve its objectives of assisting families and educating the community.

The center, situated in the basement of First Baptist Church, operates four days a month and also attends to phone inquiries beyond regular hours. The generous donations of baby clothes and items from the community have been instrumental in providing essential support to families in need.

One notable highlight was the increasing number of teenagers visiting the center in 2023, choosing life for their babies—a heartening development that was positively received by the organization.

Acknowledgment was extended to the dedicated volunteers who contribute their time to sort, organize, and distribute items, as well as conduct training sessions. Special recognition was reserved for Pastor Scott Elger and First Baptist Church for providing a conducive operating space.

In addition, Moose Jaw Right to Life expressed gratitude to SGI for a grant that facilitated the purchase of car seats for infants, coupled with training sessions provided by the Moose Jaw Police Service for selected clients.

The organization’s outreach extended to supporting mothers and babies in Nunavut through financial contributions via Campaign Life Coalition. Locally, Moose Jaw Right to Life distributed gift cards, diapers, and educational materials to mothers in need.

A significant educational initiative was launched in January 2023, focusing on sanctity-of-life issues, with over 600 wallet cards distributed to local churches. The organization also leveraged various platforms, including local media coverage, social media updates, and billboard messages along Thatcher Drive, to amplify its message.

An upcoming event, the annual garage sale and plant sale, is scheduled for May 3 and 4 at Church of Our Lady. The organization looks forward to engaging the community and welcomes donations of gently used items.

A notable project aimed at students was highlighted, featuring a comic book titled “Life Choices: The Gift,” which explores different storylines following a high school couple’s pregnancy revelation—abortion, adoption, and parenting.

As Moose Jaw Right to Life looks ahead, the organization remains committed to its mission, fostering a culture of life and support within the community.
