Fort Mill Care Center Upcoming Programs:
We would like to thank you for your support in previous years. Without the generous support of our community, none of these programs would be possible.
Girl Scout Food Drive will be Saturday, October 27th. Scouts will leave notes and bags at the homes they will be collecting. This is the 11th year girl scouts have collected food for the Care Center. If anyone would like to donate, but a scout did not leave a note, we will have the Care Center open October 27 limited hours to receive food.
Santa’s Helper Program:
The Christmas Helper program begins at the Fort Mill Care Center on October 1. Care Center clients can register their children, listing needs and wants, and those will be forwarded to sponsors who will fulfill as many of those needs and wants as they can. The input runs until Nov 9th, and sponsors will get their information up until Thanksgiving. The Center has needs for sponsors, and for volunteers who will work at the Care Center with the clients to identify those needs and wants. If you wish to volunteer, or need more information, leave your name and phone number at Fortmillsanta@live.com and someone will get back to you. Thanks in advance for your help.
Cub/ Boys Scouts: Nov 10th – the Boy Scouts will be conducting a food drive for the Care Center. If you would like to donate but a scout did not leave a bag, the Care Center will be open from 10 a.m. to noon to receive food.
