As a token of gratitude, after the community came out in droves offering support during the historic winter storm in February, Honey Grove Nursing Center is hosting a Community Give Back this weekend, offering 500 free meals.
During the devastating winter storm, Honey Grove Nursing Center’s back-up generator stopped working and all patients were transferred to a hospital or to a local church.
Richard Drake Construction supplied the nursing center with a back-up generator shortly after the center’s failed, Paul Puckett acquired it and Mac’s Electric had it installed. Allen’s Point Baptist Church members, 7th and Main Baptist Church, FBC Community and other community members helped in assisting the nursing center during the freezing months.
“We cannot thank the people at Allen’s Point Baptist Church enough for their generosity,” the center posted on social media. “We certainly couldn’t have made the transition as smoothly as we did without their assistance. This community is absolutely amazing.”
On May 1 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Honey Grove Nursing Center is giving out 500 free meals in recognition of the Honey Grove community and its surrounding area, “for your support and dedication through our past winter emergency.
“We were absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of support that we received during this time.”
The center is partnering with Red River Home Health “to make the event reality.”
“This is our way of thanking all those that helped us in our time of need.”
The nursing center asks recipients to limit meals to four per vehicle.
