Each September, the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) conducts its Restorings Carolina Through Youth Service program. From Thursday to Saturday, juveniles in each county spent several hours providing a service to people in their community. This year, 10 to 15 juveniles and three DJJ staff members from Kershaw County helped stock the pantry and feed local citizens at Food For the Soul, located on East DeKalb Street in Camden.
