HPCC gave out 49 newborn size diapers, 98 size 1 diapers, 148 size 2 diapers, 150 size 3 diapers, 275 size 4 diapers, 575 size 5 diapers and 70 size 6 diapers. In total we gave out 1,365 diapers. This of course was with the help of our partner, the NC Diaper Bank Greater Triad.
HPCC was able to give 2 people maternity clothes, 8 people received baby clothes, 3 people received furnishings, 5 people received baby toys, 5 people received baby food, 1 person receive some baby formula and 37 people received baby wipes. We continue to be able to give these items as asked for because of the individuals, churches and church groups continue to support us with donation of these items.
One of our volunteers is organizing a baby showers in several churches she is working with to provide us with baby items we need. Another individual in the community is working with the Back Yard Bible School in Germanton to have a baby shower there to provide baby items that are needed by the folks we are serving. Another church in Rural Hall is holding a month long baby shower for HPCC as well. We are blessed with great support during the early spring and summer months.
Since January of 2016 through the month of May, HPCC has served 72 individuals. It is actually a few more when you figure some of these individuals have multiple children in need. We are passing out an average of 1,457 diapers per month. We have an average of 24.6 visits per month of people seeking our assistance. Folks are coming to us from King, Walnut Cove, Germanton, Rural Hall, Tobaccoville, West Field, East Bend, Pinnacle, and Winston-Salem.
In the month of April Hope Pregnancy Center saw 40 visitors come through our doors for services. We had 8 people visit us for the first time during the course of this month.
Our volunteers gave 1 person maternity clothes, 6 people received baby clothes, 3 people received baby toys, 3 people received baby food, and 35 people received baby wipes. We had some requests for larger items such as a crib and car seats but we had none on hand to give out this month.
We gave out 75 newborn size diapers, 147 size 1 diapers, 89 size 2 diapers, 125 size 3 diapers, 375 size 5 diapers, and 20 size 6 diapers. That was a total of 1,356 diapers we were able to give out.
Other items of interest: We were able to get our driveway re-rocked for the first time in a very long time. A young man working on his Eagle Scout badge is working around the building re caulking and painting the doors and windows this spring. We thank him for his continued work on this project for us.

Renae Elmers defeated with help of pro life.
According to a post on Lifenews.com ” For a short time last year, Congresswoman Renee Ellmers was public enemy number one of the pro-life movement.”
“Congressional leaders had planned for weeks to bring up a bill to ban abortions after 20-weeks on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. But Ellmers sabotaged the bill by insisting that broad rape and incest exceptions needed to be added to the bill that many pro-life groups were worried would undermine the bill entirely and render the ban moot.”

Concerns over a gorilla’s death outweigh concern for the child?

It is disheartening to read the comments that are being tweeted and posted on the internet nowadays. Read the article that was posted on Lifenews.com and see what perspective we have have lost….it is a sad way to look at the world.
