Motorcyclists from Pickens County ABATE brought baby items for Hope Women's Center, a pro-life crisis pregnancy center located on Highway 8 between Easley and Pickens. The motorcyclists are pictured with Hope Women's Center's Director Judy Pace and Assistant Director Glennon Britton and Hope Women's Center Board members Linda Burroughs and Suzanne O'Dell.  (View 78 photos below.)


Motorcyclists who are members of Pickens County ABATE once again donated much needed baby items to Hope Women’s Center, a pro-life crisis pregnancy center located on Gentry Memorial Highway (Highway 8) in Easley, near the intersection at Breazeale Road. On Saturday morning, March 31, they met at the American Legion Hut in Liberty and rode to Hope Women’s Center, bringing the items with them for the second Run for the Younguns. 

"First of all, we just want to thank God for you," Benny Nichols, Chair of Hope Women's Center's Board of Directors, told the motorcyclists. "This will mean so much to so many young ladies and so many babies. We just really appreciate that. We really do."

"It's our pleasure," said Chat Cuddy, of Pickens County ABATE.
          
"And we appreciate what you all do," one of the female bikers told the staff, Board members, and volunteers from Hope Women's Center.

"Well, it means a whole lot to us," said Nichols, "and, by this, we don't have to turn anybody away. Know that you're helping a lot of people."

"God bless you," said one of the motorcyclists. 

"We just need to let them know that we love them and the Lord loves them," Nichols said of the hundreds of young women the Center sees. "And we're going to let them know that y'all love them."

Pace said that Hope Women's Center's sign would be changed to thank the motorcyclists for their donations.

Nichols introduced the motorcyclists to Hope Women's Center's staff, Board members, and volunteers who were present. "These are our prayer warriors," he said. "We begin every meeting with a prayer, and we end every meeting with a prayer."

"God bless you all," said one of the motorcyclists. 

"We really appreciate it," said Nichols. "We love y'all."
