From the Caring Folks at Hospice

Compassionate Winston-Salem (CWS) is an initiative that brings a focus to the many acts of service provided in our town.  HPCC is a partner in this initiative, and the Hospice Healing Build is one of the community activities highlighted under CWS.  On September 19, 2013 Quality Services staff participated in another activity – feeding the clients at the Bethesda Center shelter.

Julie Thompson organized our event, including menu planning, shopping, set-up and serving.  In addition, Julie and her husband, Sam, took on the challenge of making a huge pot of vegetable stew, cooked over an open fire.

In addition to the stew the menu included bread and butter, fruit, snack bars, and the highlight of the evening – homemade cobbler, brownies and cookies from Stacey Pollard’s daughters.   Some folks were unable to help serve but made contributions to help fund the meal.  We also appreciated Rosemary Niles’ bread donation!

About 55 clients were served, many of whom came back for seconds on stew and dessert.  This was a great way to spend an evening and give back just a little bit to our community.

Think of a giant umbrella. Under that umbrella are all of the programs and acts of compassion that we see – and don’t see – around us in Winston-Salem.
