Since its inception, HCPA has been at the heart of the community, and this is an evaluation that we do not take lightly. This organization is guided and connected by a common thread of responsibility to our communities, both here and abroad. Whether serving takes the form of emergency response, acts of service during the holidays, or the simple acts of kindness that we often take for granted, we are humbled to serve our neighbors, our families, our friends, the stranger. Here are some of our stories of gratitude!
COVID-19 Response Efforts
“In times of need, our communities step in and help one another. That’s what we’ve always done and that’s what we will continue to do. The HCPA, the HCPA Advisory Board, and countless partners raised funds for COVID-19 relief efforts during a 2-week campaign. We were able to assist 10 local families with the money raised. Remaining monies will be used to build an emergency relief fund as we move into Hurricane Season and for other unexpected life occurrences. One thing is for certain, times continue to change and global events such as pandemics, natural disasters and the like will continue. In order to help ourselves, we must stay ready, so we don’t have to get ready. The HCPA and the HCPA Advisory Board continue to accept donations even now so that we can be able to assist families and individuals that will need our assistance. To make a donation, click the donate tab or CashAPP “$HCPASSOC” or support via PayPal “firstname.lastname@example.org”. Please be sure to state “emergency relief donation” in the subject.” HCPA Member
“Sincere thanks to all of you who donated, supported, shared the information, and otherwise contributed to the first of many #Give2Serve food drives. Your donations made it possible to give away over 100 bags of groceries. Through your support, we are collectively making a difference, which eases the burden of putting food on the table for many families. Many of our neighbors are experiencing hunger daily. We plan to tackle this initiative in the weeks, months, and years to come so your continued support will be appreciated. HCPA Member
