Letter to the Editor

Writer Offers Letter of Thanks

web posted December 20, 2014

Dear Editor,
At this holiday season, we, the Board of Directors and staff of Women In Unity, extend a heartfelt thanks to the people of Edgefield County who have generously supported our work this past year. 

As one of the agencies who receive part of our operational funding from United Way, we thank everyone who contributes in any way to the United Way of Edgefield County.  We thank our community partners, especially Trinity Community Church and China Grove Church, who support us financially and with volunteer leadership.  We thank the student volunteers from Thurmond High School, and the senior citizen volunteers from the Grandparents Program and the Work Experience Program for donating their time and talent to our mission.  We thank the USDA for helping us with the purchase and renovation of our Learning Center, and for guiding us in providing healthy snacks and meals for the children in our Afterschool program.  We thank Golden Harvest Food Bank and the Johnston Food Bank for helping supply the food pantry we operate for those in need in our community.  We thank all of our regular donors because of your financial commitment, we are able to budget and plan our programs with some real hope for the future.  We thank all of our neighbors and local businesses who step up to help out when the Women In Unity fundraisers come calling either by buying an ad in our annual souvenir book, attending our annual banquet, supporting our donut sales, or becoming a patron for the summer Youth Rally.

We especially want to recognize the Daughters of the King who have come forward in recent months from the Church of the Ridge to help with our Afterschool program.  These inspiring women have organized parties for the children, donated supplies, and continue to seek out other projects to help both the children and their families.  Please accept our sincere thanks!

We thank all of you for your prayers and for your continued and generous support of our programs.  May God truly bless you in the New Year.

                            Eddie J. Woods
                            Board President
