We have completed another month at Hope Pregnancy Care Center where the visits to our door continue to outpace the number that came to us in the same month last year. This year, 57 people came to us for help. That number is 34 more than came to us in August of 2014. 57 people came to HPCC for assistance. Most came for items from the diaper bank.
We did give 3 pregnancy tests, 14 came for baby clothes, 1 received furnishings, 11 received baby toys, 3 received baby food, 2 received formula and 53 received baby wipes.
Thanks to our donors and the N.C. Diaper Bank-Triad we were able to give out 2,324 diapers this month. 67 Size New Born, 25 Size 1, 25 Size 2, 1,153 Size 3, 345 Size 4, 569 Size 5 and 140 Size 6.
The size 3 numbers reflect a large pack we have be able to give out but that number will go down some because of the packs will be the same size as other size packs after this month. The size 5 number will go up slightly as those packs will be slightly larger next month. Most will receive packs of 25 diapers as a matter of course as September moves along.
While our visitors are able to come once a week for needed baby items, we continue to have new comers each month. In the month of August, we had 13 first time people receiving services.
I also want to thank all of our volunteers who help us each week on Monday, Thursday and Saturday to assist the people who come to us for help. God is good who gives us the resources to continue this ministry every week.
