FLORENCE—The Women of St. Anthony raised $8,520 from the Baby Bottle Campaign for Respect Life Month by asking everyone to fill baby bottles with spare change. They raised $1,000 more than last year, according to Cecilia Meggs, executive director of Lighthouse Ministries. Everyone helped, including the children that attend CCD and St. Anthony School. All proceeds went to the Working Mothers Education and Support Program, a six-month, comprehensive child abuse prevention program for low-income working mothers. The program includes parenting classes, budgeting sessions and baby products.
