Double Restoring Hope Center, Inc., a non-profit organization located in Laurinburg, is on a mission to help change the lives of those in our community and our surrounding communities. Every day there are people all around us who struggle with being able to meet their basic needs or to provide hot, nutritious meals for their families.
This is not a mission that they take lightly. The staff and volunteers at RHC are passionate about what they do. They genuinely care about the people they serve and are determined to do their part in changing the lives of others. But they know that they cannot accomplish their mission on their own. “What we do on a daily basis would not be possible without the dedication of our volunteers and without the support of generous donors in our community and our surrounding counties.”, states Executive Director Faye Coates.
Ms. Coates went on to say, “The smallest box of cereal or a single dollar bill makes more of an impact on the lives of our clients than you can imagine and we are grateful for every donation we receive. While most of our donations come from those that choose to remain anonymous, today we have the chance to publicly acknowledge three Walmart stores for their gifts to RHC. To the management team and the staff at the Lumberton Walmart, Pembroke Walmart, and Raeford Walmart, we want to say a great big THANK YOU! Your kindness will bless many people and will take RHC one step closer to accomplishing our mission!
