BABY ITEM DRIVE: Justin Braga of Life Teen at , tells About Town that this Sunday, September 25, they are holding a baby item drive to help benefit Friends of the Unborn in Quincy.  

There will be a baby shower to collect essential items for mothers and their babies!

Last year, Stoughton Life Teen raised $1,127.94 to help build wells in Africa for the Give It Away Now! Life Night. As a global Life Teen family, the group totaled over $200,000 which was enough to build and maintain 18 wells in Ghana.
