Center Director Janice Rabon said she was very pleased with the donation which will be put to good use.

She said 40 percent of the donation will be utilized for community awareness with the remaining portion for assisting birth mothers who choose adoption.

The money will help pay such thing as housing, transportation and medical expenses, as well as training for nurses and counselors with adoptive services.

Humphrey explained the ARTL is organized statewide through congressional districts.

He is from the first district based in Mountain View.

Although the county currently does not have a chapter, the community promotes adoption.

The money is raised through various means such fish fry's, bake sales and through local church and community organizations.

New Beginnings Pregnancy Help Center opened its doors in 2000 for the express purpose of serving women and families experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.

In May 2007 the Center legally became a medical center, expanding services to offer women the availability of a free limited obstetrical ultrasound.
