North Star High School Daycare Receives Crib Donation from Lincoln Church

By  | 

A program designed to help teen mothers gets a generous donation just in time for Mother's Day.

Just a few months ago, a new mandate required the North Star Student-Child Learning Center to replace 32 of its cribs.

Pastor Mike Wooten Elevate Lincoln Church says that god called him to help the school just in time.

Friday, a donation from the church helped the program replace eight of those cribs.

The church was able to raise almost $2,800 in donations for the cribs in just one Sunday service.

"We're so thankful our schools provide this service so these girls can continue their education," said Pastor Mike Wooten.

Teen mom Erika Higgins agrees.

"This program is really important because if it wasn't for this, I wouldn't be able to go to school. It's allowed me to finish high school instead of dropping out and having to work a level entry job or something like that. I can actually finish high school and go to college and have a career and have something better for my son," said Higgins.
