St. Gerard's Campus in St. Augustine

Let's face it, teen pregnancy is not an ideal situation however it happens.

Parenting is never easy, whether there is one parent or two involved, it is expensive and the cost is not only financial, but emotional.

St. Gerard, located in St. Augustine, has been helping young pregnant women and girls since 1981.

St. Gerard Campus rescues girls and provides guidance to help them avoid poverty, dependency, and welfare. They learn to cope with difficult situations, rise above those difficulties, and grow to be nurturing mothers, productive members of society, and a positive force in the workplace.

In their 30 years open, they have mentored over 48,000 mothers and supported the birth of almost 31,000 babies.

The holidays are a time to give.  Take the time to be a part of our community outreach, stop by and donate what you can.
Here is a list of some of the items they need:
  • Food
  • Formula
  • Diapers
  • Adult's and children's clothing
  • Maternity clothes
  • Baby clothing
  • Cribs and bassinets
  • Infant seats
  • Car seats
  • Bouncy seats
  • Carriages
  • Strollers
  • High chairs
  • Dressers
  • Furniture and household items such as curtains, bedspreads, couches, tables, etc. 
If your not located in St. Augustine, be sure to find a local charity to give to, especially at this time of the year.  There are so many people, especially young children that need our help.
