COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., April 16, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- Save the Storks, a pro-life organization that partners with pregnancy resource centers to empower women with health and pregnancy services on mobile medical units, also known as Stork Buses, announced today that they will offer up to $1.2 million in Stork Bus grants in 2019.
Pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) and other pro-life organizations connected with PRCs, such as churches and Catholic Charities, that can own and operate mobile medical units are eligible to apply for one of 15 Stork Bus grants. Interested PRCs can apply for the grant at SavetheStorks.com.
Save the Storks ministry, based in Colorado, is a sponsor of the Heartbeat International Conference taking place next week in Dallas, Texas. Pregnancy Resource Center executive directors attending Heartbeat are encouraged to visit the Save the Storks booth to learn more about Stork Bus grants. Ashley Bratcher, star of the movie UNPLANNED, will be the special guest at Save the Storks' dessert reception at Heartbeat on April 25 for a meet and greet and Q & A session exclusively for the PRC attendees.
"Save the Storks has built and delivered 48 Stork Buses to affiliate PRCs since our ministry was founded in 2011" said Joe Baker, founder and CEO of Save the Storks. "Thanks to the generosity of our major donors and an anonymous foundation, we are blessed to be offering up to $1.2 million in grants this year to qualifying PRCs."
Joseph Schmidt, Director of Solutions for Save the Storks, added "The first 20 pregnancy resource centers that sign a contract for a mobile medical unit will receive a grant between $30,000 and $60,000 that will help fund their Stork Bus. We have seen over 6,000 women choose life for their babies on Stork Buses and the incredible gifts from our partners will help us get 20 additional Stork Buses on the road to serve even more women and save more babies."
