O1312017 HPCC Directors Report

The new year is upon us and it is off to a good start. Hope Pregnancy Care Center greeted 13 visitors as the doors opened. 6 of those visitors were with us for the very first time. 

During the month HPCC gave 2 pregnancy tests. 1 was positive and 1 was negative. Visitors where given 1 Baby Toy, 1 Baby Food, 11 Baby Wipes, as well as 3 baby grooming kits. We gave out baby towels, baby sheets, diaper bags, baby shampoo, baby wash, a baby bath tub, baby bibs and some towels. 

Additionally we gave our visitors, 194 size 1 diapers, 25 size 2 diapers, 75 size 4 diapers and 30 size 6 diapers. We continue to have some larger size, like the 6 to give out but will be concentrating on preemie to size 3 as the year goes along. Those needing the larger sizes will continue to be referred to the Stokes Co. Health Dept. WIC Program who are not handling the NC Diaper Bank Diapers for our county. 

We are so thankful that the other baby help items we have to give are still being donated by churches and individuals in the community.

“President Trump made a long-anticipated nomination to the US Supreme Court to replace the deceased Antonin Scalia. His choice is Judge Neil Gorsuch, of the US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.”

“It didn’t take long for there to be near-unanimous approval from conservatives and Trump supporters. And with good reason. Here’s why Judge Gorsuch is such a good pick……..”
