Meals on Wheels Event in Orangeburg County
Check out this amazing story from Wendy McPherson, Community Relations Liasion for Orangeburg County.
I wanted to pass along a great story about one of our partners David McLennan with Special Care Medical in West Columbia.
We are in the home stretch of an effort to fill the pantries full for every Senior Citizen on the Meals on Wheels waiting list in Orangeburg County. Newspring Church and the Apostles Motorcycle Society have stepped up in a big way and not only will we reach our goal of helping all 100 of these people.... we are on track to help 300 senior citizens in other counties!! This is due in major part to David. He was sitting behind the Apostles leader Robert Braxton in church when Robert was explaining what they were helping me do. As Robert handed someone one of my flyers, David opened a conversation with him. He said he was affiliated with Hospice Care of SC and that we had made a difference in his life personally and with his team. He told Robert he wanted to do a little research and would get back to him but that he had done some community projects with me previously and didn’t know I worked for this company. Monday of this week David asked Robert to come by his office where he presented him with a $2,000.00 check to help HCSC and our efforts to feed the seniors. He said he wanted to give back to the company that had done so much for him and show his appreciation. This has enabled us to help three times the people we had originally intended. I am in awe of seeing how God opens doors and I am truly grateful for people like David who show up when we need it.
