MANISTEE — On April 26, Green Acres Retirement Home in Manistee was host to its Third Annual Craft and Home Vendor Show, with more than 25 vendors and crafters setting up booths.

As in years past, the event was free to attend and a free lunch was also provided. In lieu of an entry fee, the public was invited to bring in baby items, which were donated to the Lighthouse Pregnancy Center.

More than 10 paper bags filled to the brim with diapers, baby wipes, bottles, diaper rash cream and other baby necessities as well as several boxes of shampoo and lotion were handed over to Myra Lautner, Director of the Lighthouse Pregnancy Center. Cash donations totaling $51 were also presented to Lautner, and Green Acres made a cash donation to the center as well, to insure they are able to meet their clients’ needs.

“This has been a blessing,” Lautner stated. “Our shelves were pretty empty and now they are overflowing. A big thank you to Green Acres for providing the opportunity for others to give so generously, and for all the donors who brought baby items that was so needed.”

Lighthouse Pregnancy Care Center is located at 234 Parkdale Ave., and it is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. The center offers free pregnancy tests, baby clothes, diapers, wipes and other baby items. Mentoring and directed spiritual guidance is available for girls and women who need assistance in unplanned pregnancies.
