December 22nd – [Roseburg, OR] On Sunday, December 19, Prayer Vineyards presented a $10,000 check to Hope Clinic for Women on behalf of the many volunteers who helped with the grape harvest on the organization’s behalf.

Over the past years, the Reustle Prayer Rock Vineyards Wine Club Family, with the help of churches in the community, has raised over $200,000 for Christian mission and nonprofit efforts locally and around the globe. They contribute funds based on the tonnage of grapes picked during harvest. The harvest began in September and continued through October. A typical harvest day starts between 7:00-8:00 a.m., and harvesters pick until about 11:30 a.m. or noon. The work is fun, full of laughter, and rewarding. At lunchtime each picking day, all the volunteers gather at the winery for a complimentary lunch served with Reustle-Prayer Rock Vineyards wine.

Supporters of Hope Clinic for Women organized themselves and showed up to harvest grapes and support a mission they care about. Carly Mauch led the effort and received the check on behalf of the clinic on Sunday afternoon. She said, ” “It was a real treat for us to have such a great volunteer crew… we had over 20 people each of the 18 days all working for about four hours a day. We were also blessed by the vineyard taking such good care of our volunteers. Not only did they feed us lunch and have coffee and snacks at mid-morning break each day, but we were also able to relax on the observation deck after lunch and spend some time becoming acquainted with many of their wine club members, who are now friends. Additionally, we were able to observe the winemaking process and learn a lot about their industry.”

Hope Service, DBA Hope Clinic for Women, is a faith-based nonprofit organization serving women in Douglas County with free pregnancy testing, ultrasound exams to confirm pregnancy. Pregnancy option consultations, community resource referrals, prenatal vitamins, pregnancy classes, and support for reproductive loss. The clinic operates under the direction of Dr. Marty Powell, who has been voluntarily serving as the Medical Director for the last eight years.

The donation from Reustle will support growing services as Hope Clinic, including the expansion of pregnancy and new parent classes and the Pathways program, which provides support for women experiencing grief from reproductive loss such as miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, and infertility. Hope Clinic’s Executive Director Destiny Molatore says, “We are so thankful for Stephen and Gloria and for all of the volunteers who worked on behalf of the clinic. It’s exciting to see the community coming together in this way to provide hope and support for those who may be facing an unplanned, uninsured, or unsupported pregnancy.”

Hope Clinic relies on private donations and volunteer support to provide all services free of charge. Donations can be mailed to 1425 W Harvard Ave, Roseburg, OR 97471, or by visiting the organization’s website at hopeclinicroseburg.org
