We continued our 2015 trend of having more people come to Hope Pregnancy Care Center in July 2015 than did in July 2014! We had 40 visitors come through our doors this month. We had folks come from King, Walnut Cove, Pinnacle,Pilot Mountain and Winston-Salem.
We gave one pregnancy test that was negative. 2 people received maternity clothes, 4 received baby clothing, 1 received some baby toys, 1 received some baby food, 33 received some baby wipes. Other items given out were baby bath lotion and shampoo, a stroller, baby shoes and some baby bottles.
Our diaper bank was very busy this month as we gave out 86 New Born diapers, 138, Size 2 Diapers, 652 Size 3 diapers, 460 Size 4 diapers, 625 Size 5 diapers and 30 Size 6 diapers. We gave a total of 1,906 diapers out. We are grateful to our partner the NC Diaper Bank-Triad and our local church partners who supplied us with the diapers we are able to give out.
We are grateful to all of our volunteers who continue to keep us open on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. We have had the pleasure of a summer volunteer, Lori and we have a brand new volunteer Paulina, that will begin helping on Thursdays really soon. We are thankful that folks continue to give generously the baby items we are able to give and to the churches who had baby showers that supplied us with items we really need….especially the wipes for the little tushes!
