From the Desk of the President
Amid the unprecedented circumstances that COVID-19 has unleashed, I take great comfort in knowing what a caring and compassionate community we are blessed to be part of.
The Care Center continues to receive both pantry and monetary donations on a regular basis. It is evident that there are a countless number of caring people, not only concerned about their own well being during this pandemic, but so selflessly reaching out with concern for others as well.
I am grateful that we are able to remain open as an essential service during this uncertain and difficult time and also for the opportunity I have to witness the compassion and kind acts extended to our neighbors in need. This has always been the case at the Fort Mill Care Center, but it has been magnified as we weather this storm together as a community.
I extend a heartfelt thank you for the outreach we have been blessed by, and pray that each of you will feel an increased portion of peace and hope in all that is good around us.
Snacks, Canned Fruit, Grits, Jelly, Laundry Detergent, Fresh and Frozen meat. Donations can be delivered during normal operating hours: MWF, 9-12
Assistance Provided in March
During the month of March, the Care Center received 8,329 lbs. of donated food, and we were able to provide 168 households with food/toiletries.
Adorable Easter Baskets were donated and distributed to families with children.
Numerous monetary donations continue to pour in as well. These donations contributed to the purchase of fresh produce and other needed items in the pantry and, provided life saving prescriptions, and emergency dental extractions.
In addition, your monetary donations provide our clients with the vital assistance needed to keep their utilities on. During this pandemic, we take comfort in knowing that utility companies are not currently disconnecting any services, and that we will be able to resume assistance with utility bills, when we are able to operate at full capacity again.
A big thank you to our Fort Mill community. We couldn’t do this without you!!!
