I have used Gate for my 1st pregnancy, when I needed help. I didn't have support from my family at first. They were like family for me. Helped me to forget how scared I was to be a parent and they were a great support system and I was able to get diapers and wipes and clothes that I needed. I still go back to visit the ladys in the office and I always attend their yard sales. I definitley support this non profit group. Although I haven't been able to donate financially I have donated my kids clothes and accessories to Gate and I feel great when I do because I know it's going to someone that needs it and that the ladies in the office make sure their resources they receive are used for what they are supposed to be used for.
I support the wonderful work GATE does with donations- both monetary and items they need. I have also volunteered in the center. It is a blessing to have this kind of center available for the women in need. Their work is God centered and life changing.
I donated lots of baby clothes and some baby equipment and they gave me the low down on their operation! This program is phenomenal. They give new moms in need classes and guidance. They offer baby supplies, clothing, equipment, etc and it's free. This is a wonderful non-profit!
