Kershaw County cares

Many, many years ago, Tom and Cyndi Fussell started a tradition of serving the hungry and homeless on Thanksgiving Day out of their restaurant in Camden. Kelly and I were fortunate to join them some years later, and -- several years ago -- formed a group called Kershaw County Cares to continue the tradition started by Tom and Cyndi. This year, more than 100 volunteers gave up part of their Thanksgiving and Christmas days to come and prepare, serve and deliver more than 1,450 meals to Kershaw County’s less fortunate!

Words cannot express how thankful we are for every one of you! On perhaps two of the busiest days of the year, when most would prefer to be home with family, you sacrificed so that those without would have a hot meal on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Your donations of food, funds and most importantly, time, have impacted people far beyond simply providing them with a meal.

As another holiday season draws to a close and we return to the hustle and bustle of busy lives, know that many of the people fed on Thanksgiving and Christmas are here, working and living among us, year round. Andy Stanley said “Do for one what you wish you could do for all.” If we all took that attitude year round, hunger and homelessness would be a thing of the past! Kelly and I hear all year long how people’s lives were changed by a simple meal and someone who cared. Go and be the hands and feet of Christ, and make a difference!

Thank you Kershaw County!
