St. Francis of Assisi Women's Guild became Sponsor-A-Day Partners with the Smoky Mountain Pregnancy Care Center this past month. Their sponsorship helps keep SMPCC's clinic doors open to the communities in Jackson and Macon counties. They provide free pregnancy testing, limited OB Ultrasounds, medical consultations, post-abortive peer-counseling, and many community referrals. This 501(c)3 non-profit is fully community supported.

Though they do have different events like BBQ dinners, silent auctions, pancake breakfasts, 5K and half marathon runs, and an annual banquet, they still need individuals, businesses, and organizations in the community to help.
