Quarterly Events:

Every quarter The New Life Center puts on an event for our community to help us connect with new clients and find new ways to serve Bardstown! These events are fun-filled and usually include multiple family-friendly activities as well as giveaways. Get involved by serving, sponsoring, or attending one of these events. 


We have 3 fundraisers currently. We have the "Change for Change" campaign, The Turkey Fun Run and Family Stroll, and the Chocolate Extravaganza. 

"Change For Change" Baby Bottle Campaign

• Pick start and end dates for your campaign (allowing 4 weeks in between).

• Request the number of bottles your group needs and pick them up at The New Life Center.

• Announce the fundraiser through provided bulletin inserts/flyers.

• Distribute the empty bottles, fill them with change, cash, or check, and collect them back by your designated end date.  You can count the change and bring the empty bottles and a check to The New Life Center, or The New Life Center will count the change and tell you how much you raised!

An important way to support the center is financially. The New Life Center is a 501c3 non-profit. This means we do not receive any government funding or grants. All of our financial support comes from individuals, organizations, and churches. Any financial support we receive helps us to fulfill our mission by allowing us to purchase things such as new curriculum and necessary items for clients. as well as the daily operation of the Center. You can support the center financially either by giving a one-time gift or by becoming an NLC Partner through reoccurring giving.

It's simple.  Just ask for the "CHOOSE LIFE" plate when renewing your auto registration.  The plate will cost extra for two reasons: 1) there is a $10 donation to The New Life Center if the plate is purchased in Nelson County; and 2) the plate itself costs money for the state to offer.  So, once the plate is purchased, the cost each year is just like any basic plate except there is a $10 donation added to it.
