The Lamoille Valley Pregnancy Resource Center hopes to open its doors in the upcoming year and plans to offer a variety of free services to women facing an unplanned pregnancy. These services will be available regardless of income, race, religion, national origin, age, marital status.

In October, Executive Director Eliza Giard learned of an opportunity to acquire a free exam table from a counterpart in Keene, New Hampshire. The only problem was moving it.

Excited with this news, she contacted Father Jon Schnobrich, pastor of Most Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Morrisville who then contacted the Knights of Columbus Grand Knight for help.

At the council business meeting on Nov. 8, this urgent need and opportunity to assist the LVPRC  was discussed. Realizing that the council did not have the proper resources to move the exam table, a motion was made to pay a moving company to do the job. The motion was unanimously approved after discussion. Greg Sargent, owner of Sargent’s Moving was recommended, and he was happy to assist.

Just days later, Giard was offered an ultrasound machine at zero cost from an organization in Manchester, New Hampshire. Hearing that, Sargent offered to move both pieces of equipment  to Morrisville at a very reasonable rate, saying, “This is a special load, connected to my church.”
