The Florence DuPont Retiree’s Club made its annual charity donations on Dec. 16 at Bazen’s Restaurant. Four non-profit agencies ­­– Lighthouse Ministries, Mercy Medicine, Harvest Hope Food Bank and House of Hope of the Pee Dee – each received a check for $950. The club began collecting contributions from its members at its functions in early 2011 and continued that effort monthly.

They donated a total of $1,100 to three local charity organizations (House of Hope of the Pee Dee, Lighthouse Ministries, and Harvest Hope Food Bank) in December 2011. In 2012, they added a fourth charity organization, Mercy Medicine, and in December they donated a total of $2,350 to the four charities.

In December 2013, club members donated a total of $2,600 to its four charities and in December 2014, they again donated $2,600 to the four charities. In the past five years, DuPont retirees have contributed $12,578 to these non-profits serving those in need in the Pee Dee area. In addition, they have worked in conjunction with Lighthouse Ministries to build 12 handicap ramps for local citizens.
