Thanks to the efforts of DSS workers, GAL, and many volunteers, Friday August 4th was a success. Walmart and Academy Sports allowed us to setup our tables and hand out gift cards to the families that participated. We had around 83% participation
Donations were very generous and our supporters gave roughly $13,000 that will help replenish our funds. We also received $619.00 on site cash donations thanks to the Easley Fire Department fire truck display, and donation buckets on site at our tables.
The families that participated were very thankful for this opportunity to purchase items needed by their chlidren with the gift cards they received. Thanks again to Walmart and Academy Sports for your donation and allowing us to setup at their stores.
