NASCAR Driver and Interstate Help CareNet
I’m excited to bring you news of a story about a nationally-prominent NASCAR driver stepping up to help CareNet – the nation’s leading pro-Life pregnancy care organization.
Last Sunday, NASCAR driver Bobby LaBonte began carrying the CareNet logo on his car in the race at Martinsville, along with Interstate Batteries. It was the kick-off for a fundraising campaign, called “Charged for Life”.
During the campaign, Interstate will donate more than 50% of proceeds from various batteries to CareNet. The company makes batteries for homes, appliances, toys and cars.
CareNet president Kurt Entsminger was effusive in his praise for Interstate. The company, he said, is a “great role model” for companies wanting to make a big difference at the local level. CareNet serves some 10,000 women and girls a month from over 900 pregnancy centers in America and Canada.
These centers make a profound commitment to each pregnant girl or woman coming in the door. Highly trained volunteers work to meet medical, financial, physical and emotional needs of mothers who need help. These front line soldiers demonstrate God’s love and provide the pro-Life community’s best response to the hype and deception of Planned Parenthood.
The oldest CareNet facility in Idaho is in Nampa. But other great centers are now operating in Twin Falls, Lewiston and Coeur d’Alene.
Unfortunately, Idaho’s Abortion Capitol – Boise – is not yet on that list. Despite the fact that some 92% of all Idaho abortions happen in Boise – there is not a CareNet facility in the large and well-heeled community. This is an on-going tragedy we hope to soon correct.
In the meantime, our hats off to Interstate and Bobby LaBonte. If you need a new car battery for the winter – please consider spending your money on an Interstate brand.
And, by the way, LaBonte came in 4th behind Jeff Gordon.
