Thursday, August 5th, the Housing authority of Darlington, Genesis Health Care, and Welvista teamed up to donate backpacks full of school supplies and lunch to local children.
The event began at 12 noon in the front of the Housing Authority and ended an hour earlier than anticipated due to the large crowd that gathered 30 minutes earlier.
Jaime Steen, Executive Director of the Housing Authority said, “We want to thank all the people who contributed.” She explained how many of the supplies were donated from local churches, businesses, and individuals who understand the yearly expense that new supplies could bring. Howard Nettles, Director of Community Outreach/Recruiting for Genesis and City Council Member stated, “This is one of the ways Genesis reaches out to the community we serve.”
