Recently, Congressman Patrick McHenry donated office furnishings from his former Hickory District office to the Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministry (GHCCM). The items donated include multiple desks, sofas, conference chairs, a conference table, a monitor, and lamps. 

"Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministry does important work serving the underprivileged in Hickory and throughout Catawba County,"  said Congressman McHenry. "I have no doubt these donations will be put to good use by CHCCM helping to further advance their mission of assisting those in need here in western North Carolina." 

"Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministry is so grateful for the beautiful pieces of furniture donated by Congressman McHenry and his office," said GHCCM Executive Director Barbara Rush Early. "Staff and clients alike appreciate the generous donation. GHCCM used some of the pieces to furnish our SOARR (Services, Outreach, Advocacy, Resources and Referral) Center which is available to our clients to access needed social services on-site. Thank you Congressman McHenry for your hard work, consideration and dedication to our ministry and our community."

The mission of the Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministry is to offer hope, help, and healing to those in most need through service, advocacy, and community support. 

The General Services Administration allows for items that are no longer needed in an office but are still in good shape, to be transferred out of federal inventory and donated to qualifying non-profit agencies.
