DSS helps battle starvation with dionation to Church Group Providers

LAURINBURG – Scotland County DSS has held a contest with its staff over the past few weeks in hopes of helping to feed the members of the community. On Monday, DSS delivered the donated food to the church’s community services.

“Our A-Team, as we call it, has a canned goods collection planned for all of our employees to attend,” said Director April Snead. “This group is working to build morale in our building and this initiative was just another way to do that.”

In total, the crew was able to collect 1,544 cans for the Laurinburg parish.

“Our winning group was the Child Support Unit, which collected 637 cans, almost half,” said Snead.

CCS always accepts donations to continue serving the community and its members. The Tafel offers a variety of non-perishable foods, as well as donated fresh vegetables and other items as they become available.

“We really appreciate the people at DSS for this,” said Vince Bateman, customer service coordinator. “It’s just unreal. And they were able to collect all of this in just a few weeks.

“Our customers will surely appreciate it,” added Bateman.

Church Community Services is located on South Gill Street in Laurinburg. For information on the services and opportunities offered, visit the Facebook page or call 910-276-8330.

“We try to help everyone we can,” Bateman said. “We are there for the people of Scotland County and any service or product we offer is free to those in need.”
