Over 30 staff and volunteers of the Loving Arms Crisis Pregnancy Center in Taylorville, met at the Kiwanis Park pavilion on Saturday afternoon for the annual volunteer appreciation cookout.
Executive director Cathy Coker told Regional Radio News the yearly event is a way to thank the many volunteers that make the center run every day.
Coker said the amount of volunteer hours, when figured monetarily, is substantial.
5-year plaques were given to volunteers Marilyn Lupton, Ron Sheley, Jim and Karen Nuelle, Cleo Thacker, and Marilyn Vits.
Loving Arms Crisis Pregnancy Center offers faith-based pregnancy and counseling services from its location at 500 North Walnut in Taylorville. More information is available on-line at lovingarmstaylorville-dot-org.
