Director’s Report

05032021 HPCC Directors Report

As of 03/29/2021 the long-awaited bridge replacement on Meadowbrook Drive began. The State Detour Route is in place sending folks from S Main to Newsome Road to Meadowbrook Drive to get here to HPCC. Our HPCC signs direct people along that route and by Trinity Church Road to Calloway Rd to Newsome Road. As of Monday May 3, we have had  24 HPCC client visits to HPCC since 1/1/21. We had a couple of people come by to donate several items to us.  Our two latest volunteers have given notice that for the present time, they will not be able to continue to serve as volunteers. Given that, we are back to Monday, Thursday and the second Saturday of each month of being open. The pandemic and the road closure is having an effect on what we are able to do here at HPCC. We continue to provide maternity clothing, baby clothing, baby shoes, furnishings, baby food, formula, baby cribs/beds and coverings, sheets, blankets, toys, baby shampoo/wash/lotions, and diapers that those in need present a need for.

The small building that we had put up to store it in has now be torn down and “donated” to the Hanes Mill Landfill in Winston-Salem.

As a reminder to you, Mike and I will be going to Texas for our son, Justin’s wedding in May. We will be in Texas (or on the road for most of the month of June. We will not be open on Thursday the last week of May or the entire month of June.

I want to also remind you that we are looking for some folks to Join our Board and for some folks to volunteer to revitalize what we are doing.
