Harvest Hope partnered with Manning Baptist Church in Dillon on Wednesday, September 6, and donated at least 50 boxes of food.
The distribution in memory of Sheriff Douglas Pernell began at 10:00 a.m. and lasted until all of the food was distributed. This event honored the late Sheriff Pernell’s commitment to his community and his passion for addressing hunger in Dillon County.
In the month of August, 2023, Betty Campbell, coordinator for Harvest Hope at Manning Baptist Church, and other volunteers at Manning Baptist Church, donated 1,086 boxes of food in honor of Douglas Pernell.
Harvest Hope is building a hunger-free tomorrow in 20 counties across South Carolina. Rescuing food from stores that is at risk of being discarded, as well as sourcing food from the community and producers, they distribute it to local food pantries and through mulple feeding programs.
These programs provide food for some of SC’s most vulnerable cizens – children, seniors, and rural residents who don’t have access to reliable transportaon to grocery stores.
Annually, Harvest Hope provides over 22 million meals to neighbors in need across their service area. Learn more at harvesthope.org.
