We'd Like To Say Thanks!
In case you were not aware, throughout the month of August, HMC Partners collected household items as part of a “Kitchen Shower” for the SECU Family House in Winston-Salem. The SECU Family House provides affordable lodging in a caring environment for referred adult patients and/or their caregivers who travel to Winston-Salem for medical treatment. Caregivers often must camp out in hospital waiting rooms, hallways and in their cars. The SECU Family House offeres 45 guest rooms, each with two queen beds and a private bath. It provides a common living, dining and kitchen areas, laundry facilities, outdoor patio areas, and support from staff volunteers and other families. Staff and volunteers are on site at all times to assist the more than 2,000 families a year who will stay at the House, as well as the outpatients who will come for day respite in between treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy.
As you can imagine, when hosting over 2000 families each year, who all have access to a common kitchen where meals or snacks can be prepared, items get broken and also worn out. At HMC Partners we wanted to help, so we hosted donation boxes at our two offices (Winston-Salem and Greensboro) to help re-stock the kitchen with commonly used items.
We are happy to report that we had great success in collecting items. In total, through your generous donations, we were able to donate the following:
• Monetary Donations online totaling $110.00 • Target Gift card • 2 Cutting Boards • Electric Can Opener • Spice Rack • 3 Pitchers • Knife Block Set • Pyrex 19 pc Bakeware set • Hand Mixer • 3 pc Cookie sheet set • Tupperware • Blender • Dish Towels/Pot Holders • Wooden Spoons • Kitchen Utensils: Measuring spoons, cups, wooden spoons, soup ladle • 17 pc Pot and Pan Set • 2 sets Serving/Mixing Bowls • Soup bowls • Skillet • Hand held can opener
