Our goal is to fulfill immediate client needs while minimizing risk to our volunteers, clients, and staff. Food, Utility, and Medical Assistance Clients will be assisted as usual, but with the safety of all in mind. Clients seeking clothing assistance will be delayed for two weeks, and no new appointments will be made at this time for clothing. Senior Food will still occur this Saturday, March 21, but with limited restrictions for clients and volunteers.

Please contact Client Services (803-642-5919) during the hours of 11:00 am - 3:00 pm to inquire about your existing appointment.

Our team will continue to monitor the impact of Coronavirus/COVID-19, and plans will be updated as needed.
