 Gateway Pregnancy Centers

 Sandy Relief Project needs your help

Hurricane Sandy has not only devastated many parts of southern New Jersey, but it has affected many families in the Irvington, Newark and Plainfield areas.

Two weeks after the storm, many are still without electricity or heat. Gas is scarce and expensive. Many have little food and clothing. Churches are doing their part.

At Gateway, we have been challenged to help those families who have specific baby needs (diapers, wipes, formula, baby food and blankets (both for the babies and their parents).

By helping through the Gateway Sandy Relief Project funds may be freed up for food, clothing or other urgent needs. Some families, to be sure, have no funds.

These families can not wait until Thanksgiving or Christmas for help. Many are without power. Children are cold and hungry.

These baby provisions will be a real blessing as well as an opportunity to bring the gospel.. and isn't this what Gateway is all about?

If you or folks you know can help with any of these items, either email us (dean@gateway.org) or call us (973)399-8378.  

The fastest way to help is to donate online at our site: www.gateway.org

All funds received will be used to purchase in bulk, the baby items named above.

Gateway will provide the items to a network of local churches who will personally give them to families. They, of course, will also provide the gospel (as we do) to those receiving the items.

What a great way to be the “boots on the ground” during this window of opportunity.

Can we count on you?
