Annual EMA Collection on Sunday

The collection this Sunday is our annual dedicated collection for EMA -- Emergency Medical Assistance, which assists women in need of legal, safe abortions:

Emergency Medical Assistance, Inc. (EMA) is an independent nonprofit organization serving Palm Beach County and surrounding areas in South East Florida. EMA improves lives by helping to provide funding for abortions for women and girls who are faced with an unintended or problem pregnancy which they cannot afford to terminate. The majority of women and girls that we help are single, impoverished, unemployed or underemployed, mothers with one or more children. EMA preserves clients’ privacy and dignity while ensuring high quality and safe medical care when they face this difficult situation.
