Middle School students at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School spent Lent collecting donations for COPE. COPE, Counseling Outreach for Pregnancy Emergency, is a non-profit organization in the River Region offering free services for women facing crisis pregnancies which provides women with alternatives to abortion, pregnancy testing, adoption information, and parent education training. Each homeroom was responsible for collecting different items including, diapers, bottles, baby blankets and clothes, wipes, shampoo and baby lotion. The students also played penny wars between homerooms and collected $550 which was used to purchase two car seats, clothing, bottles and additional diapers, lotion and shampoo. Lorie Mullins, Executive Director of COPE, accepted their donations on April 16 and she was thrilled with the car seats, a needed item at COPE, and she thanked the students for their generosity.
