WELCOME TO THE GHHC BOARD DR. CECE HARRIS
We are thrilled to announce that Dr. CeCe Harris has joined the board of God's Hygiene Help Center. She will be a tremendous contributor to our board.
Dr. CeCe Harris is the Community Resource Specialist for the Youth and Family Development Division of the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department. CeCe works diligently with local organizations and businesses and the Columbus City Schools to assist in improving the lives of children and families in the city of Columbus. CeCe met with Diane and Terry in the summer of 2018. We discussed the concept of having hygiene help centers in the Columbus community centers. CeCe immediately connected with GHHC and became passionate about helping us set up hygiene help centers in local community centers located in low-income communities.
Dr. Harris is heavily involved in her community and has been awarded the “Everyday HERO” award with NBC 4 and the “Woman of Power” award for 2021. She truly has a passion for helping others in need and servicing the entire city of Columbus. Welcome CeCe!

helping community members
A lady who had lost her husband and has a heart condition called Tammy Tammy usually will not deliver items to people because of high risk, but she made an exception for this senior citizen who was so grateful to receive needed hygiene items.
Another day Tammy was shopping at Aldi's and noticed a pregnant young mom. "Do you need help or hygiene or resources?" Yes! she said. The next day she was our first client of the day who visited our Oakland Park Help Center.
Thank you to Carol T. for donating 2 dozen Disney comforters and curtains. You know how to bless the children and families in our community.
More handbags were donated to GHHC so our great volunteers again filled them up with some hygiene items and Teresa Lauderdale came to pick them up for her outreach. This visit she and Tammy had a chance to meet and visit. So ladies, please contact Terry Starr when you clean out your closet of discarded purses.
Thank you to our super volunteer Bonnie Johnston. As an auxiliary member of The Gideons, she is able to give out Bibles. We will gladly accept any Christian books you have finished reading.
13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 14 Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14
