Charity grateful for help

To the editor:

Church Community Services is very thankful for the many donations we receive, clean and usable clothing and household items, canned food, breads and vegetables, and lots of volunteer hours.

However, we would like to especially thank the Baptist Ramp Builders, from First Baptist Church here in Laurinburg, for our new “Clothing Drop Box” for folks to place donated items in when we are not open. We are trying to keep the sidewalk clear so if the box is full please leave items outside the box or bring them back. Thanks to Lowe’s Home Improvement Store for some of the supplies needed for the box.

Thanks to the many Scotland County residents who gave canned food for the Postal Food Drive, May 14 where we received about 2,000 pounds, picked up by the mail carriers.

Church Community Services volunteers: Melvin Quick, Reg Covington, Alonzo Hines, Verne Womack, & Emily Freeman and leaders and members of Girl Scout Troop 239 —Brynley Freeman, Mahayla Turner, Emma Houg, Violet Leviner, Abbi Williams, Emily Campbell-Tyler, Alyssa Ferguson, Mariah Cooper and Cholee Edge — brought the food to the center and everyone sorted and sorted and sorted. The Troop returned Monday evening and sorted some more.

The Girl Scout Troop members must each do 20 hours of Community Services to earn their Bronze Awards. We are thankful they have chosen Church Community Services to be the recipient of some of the service hours.

Leslie Womack

Director of Church Community Services
