Volunteer Spot Light
-Phil and Claudia Cargill
We began volunteering at the Davenport Pregnancy Resource center in January 2014. We’ve taught Baby Basics, Healthy Pregnancy and Smart Start classes together. It has been enlightening to interact with clients as a married couple. The clients respect Claudia for her loving heart and vast experience while Phil gives a male perspective, some medical and anatomical information and adds humor. We are enthusiastic about Pregnancy Resources as we want to share a meaningful volunteer experience that could help people, change their lives, and give couples and singles the seeds of growth by introducing them to Christianity.
Phil teaches 24/7 Dad class and is working with others to publicize and personalize the program for the QC area. Also, the staff often asks Phil to sit in the reception area to interact with guys when their girlfriend or wife comes in for a pregnancy test or ultrasound. For me, that’s a great opportunity to encourage them to make a lasting commitment to their partner.
Our faith and our desire to help others is growing by leaps and bounds. We are wonderfully blessed by the staff and other volunteers in the Quad Cities Pregnancy Resources centers as well as by our clients.
