Community Outreach for Sumter County United Ministries

Santee-Lynches RCOG staff collected and delivered over 200 canned goods/staple foods to Sumter County United Ministries as part of our quarterly community outreach. The food will assist the Ministries with feeding Sumter County families who are in need. Thank you to COG Board Members Jim McCain (Sumter County Council Chair) and Jim Campbell for their assistance in delivering these items. COG staff continue to work with local communities in the four-county region on quarterly outreach projects.
