The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation in partnership with Cross Country Cowboy Church announces the Grand Opening of “In My Closet”.
Cancer…that dreaded word has plagued so many families in Hopkins County. The end result is the Health Care Foundation and Cross Country Cowboy Church want to find a way to help.
The Cross Country Cowboy Church has hosted the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” Ranch Rodeo for the past couple of years with all of the proceeds benefiting the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation–specifically for cancer patients. After several meetings the two organizations realized the need for necessities for patients undergoing cancer treatments, which is where the vision for “In My Closet” was born.
“In My Closet” is now offering a helping hand for men and women undergoing cancer treatments. The closet is filled with an assortment of wigs, scarves, hats, specialty lotions/creams, books, puzzles, etc. The desire is to help patients feel better. Recognizing the difficulties of finding certain items in our community, the church and health care foundation are hoping to help patients who cannot drive to Dallas or those who might not have the funds to purchase items online.
This is a free service and is for anyone struggling through cancer. A picture ID & doctor appointment card are the only requirements. The closet will be open on Tuesdays from 9am-2pm, or by appointment.
Donations of new or gently used items are welcomed as well as monetary love donations.
