Thank you Exchange Club of Charleston!

Posted by on Nov 25, 2010 in Rural Mission News | Comments Off on Thank you Exchange Club of Charleston!

The Exchange Club of Charleston, S.C. has generously supported charities and non-profits for more than 50 years from the proceeds of the annual Coastal Carolina Fair. This year the Exchange Club presented grants to 61 charities and agencies with more than $500,000 from the proceeds of the 10 day fair. The Rural Mission is very grateful for their support. The $8,000 grant award will go to support the Mission’s outreach to needy families. These funds are truly needed in the midst of this recession economy.

Our special thanks go to all the members of the Exchange Club of Charleston for making the Coastal Carolina Fair a huge yearly success and for using this income to assist and support worthy causes and needs in every part of this region.

For more on this grant award program by the Exchange Club, please read a terrific editorial column in the April 8, 2010 Post and Courier by Ken Burger entitled, “Corn dogs, cotton candy and charity“.
