Hinton Rural Life Center welcomes another group to its campus this week to begin much needed home repairs in our community. You will begin to see tell-tale signs of Hinton work trucks being followed by church vans each and every weekday morning and evening as they criss-cross Clay County providing free repair service to your neighbors in need.
Hinton Center receives around 200 requests each year for home repairs. With nearly 1000 volunteers coming from across the country to help out with these repairs, Hinton hopes to be able to reach each of these requests. The manpower is ready to work; however, portions of the Center’s vehicle and tool supply is aging and in need of replenishment. Gently used power or hand tools and lawn equipment are needed, as well as pick-up trucks in running condition.
If you have a friend or relative who has been helped through the years by the Hinton volunteers, or if you are simply looking for a tax-deductible donation, Hinton Center welcomes your assistance as they work to improve the lives of those in need. Please drop donations at the Center at 2330 Hinton Center Rd., or call 828-389-8336 for more information.
Hinton also is looking for local volunteers to help out in our office and on the grounds of the Center. Please stop by the office or call 828-389-8336 to offer your time so that Clay County residents may continue to receive the Center’s services.
