Providing Food and Shelter for those in need in Kershaw County

July 2019

10th Anniversary Year
Serving the homeless and hungry in Kershaw County since 2009!

July Highlights

Thanks to shelter guests who weed, mow and water our garden, we have vegetables, herbs, and lovely flowers for meals and decoration. The marigolds help to keep unwanted pests out as well. Thank you to First Baptist Church ladies for planting the first garden in 2018. It's going strong now!

July is hot, hot, hot! Inside the center, with the aid of large ceiling fans, air moves to cool breakfast and lunch patrons, as well as nighttime guests. As high as the power bills are for the center, they don't seem quite as bad with the extra air circulation. Stay cool everyone!
Thank you to the men and women in blue who serve our city, preserving and protecting the rights of all citizens. FFTS is blessed to have Officers Karen DeVor and Carl Smith of Camden Police Department visit our center almost daily to talk to the guests, meeting new people and helping those who need additional help that they can provide. We are grateful for their service!

Spotlight: Billy Brewer

Billy hails from West Virginia originally, and finally landed in Camden, via Charleston. His talents include carpentry, building floating boat docks and lifts, and hotel maintenance. Fishing is his favorite hobby ("anything that bites"). You can find Billy almost every Saturday at the Farmer's Market where he assists volunteers and customers loading sod into their vehicles. "I love people", Billy says, and he proves it everyday with a smile and a willing attitude to help the center wherever needed. Thank you, Billy, for all you do for us!
