FALLBROOK – Just before fire evacuation orders were given in Fallbrook and Bonsall Dec. 7, members of the Zion Lutheran Church women's Bible study held a "baby shower" in place of their gift exchange to benefit Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center. Zion's new pastor, Aaron Pingle, assisted with encouragement.

Carolyn Koole, executive director of the center said, "These donations allow FPRC to provide helpful free resources to moms in the Fallbrook community in exchange for learning and to provide baby layettes for new mothers. Without community donations, we could not offer these incentives that encourage growth in parenting and personal maturity and to celebrate new lives in Fallbrook."

Sandy Hull, owner of 100 Main, hosted a "Shop for a Cause" event on Black Friday weekend, Nov. 24 through Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28, and 10 percent of all sales were donated to Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center. Hull wrote the center a check for $590, Dec. 13, benefiting FPRC's hashtag #GivingTuesday campaign, part of a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday kicked off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Hull's donation was matched dollar for dollar by an FPRC donor willing to match up to $25,000 on Giving Tuesday donations. Funds raised and matched on #GivingTuesday for FPRC totaled $15,000. All funds raised on #GivingTuesday went to FPRC's capital campaign to complete their building located at 125 E. Hawthorne.
