County Council Chairman kicks off Veteran Assistance Fundraising Project

web posted August 30, 2014

JOHNSTON – Edgefield County Council Chairman Dean Campbell is kicking off this year’s Chairman’s Community Project to bring money and attention to military veterans. And you can help.

All our veterans are important to our country, our state and our communities, but many are in need of assistance, Campbell said. There are many projects, such as Wounded Warrior and State War Veterans Homes, which are among the ways veterans and families can receive help.

“Our freedoms come from God, and our soldiers protect our freedoms and rights every day,” Campbell said. “I encourage everyone to stop, just for a moment, and consider how blessed we are that we are a free nation. That freedom comes at a cost.”

The funds raised through the Chairman’s Community Project, which come only from public donations, will be divided between local American Legion posts in Edgefield and Johnston. These American Legion posts, in turn, will invest all the funds raised into the veterans-assisted programs that they support.

Campbell began the Chairman’s Community Project as an annual fundraising effort to help fill needs in the area. Past years’ Projects have included raising money for heating bills for those who couldn’t afford it to providing more funds and food for the Johnston Food Bank, as well as materials for the Edgefield County libraries.

For those who want to contribute to this year’s fundraising Project, monetary donations should be mailed to the Johnston American Legion Post 154, P.O. Box 327, Johnston, SC 29832. Proceeds will be split between the Legion Posts.

The Project runs during the month of September.
