Church donates backpacks
The gracious members of The Garden Church of Florence made a generous donation of 48 bookbags packed full of school supplies, snacks, water bottles and Bibles.
These bookbags will be given to the children served at the Durant Children’s Center, formerly known as the Elizabeth Pettigrew Durant Children’s Center, which is also a part of Pee Dee Coalition.
Two staff members of the Pee Dee Coalition were able to receive the backpacks for the facility. Haley Schaefer, Florence County Volunteer Coordinator with Pee Dee Coalition and Sierra Hensley, Case/Intake Coordinator for Durant Children’s Center were able to receive the donations on behalf of the Pee Dee Coalition
The Garden Church of Florence is pastored by Rex Hunter. The church is located in Florence. Members of the church also attended the backpack donation event.
