All Saints Church goes way back in the recorded history of this Low Country region. In the early 1700's, the property was owned by Percival Pawley and his wife Ann, who transferred the title to their son, Thomas George Pawley, and William Poole as trustees for "the people of the Waccamaw Neck" in order to build an Anglican church on the site.  The first church was built in the 1730's, the second in 1816, the third in 1843, and the present church in 1916.  All Saints is now an Anglican Church affiliated with ACNA under the direction of Rector, Rob Grafe.

McDonald’s Buy One, GIVE One Happy Meal program

-- McDonald’s Launches “Buy One, Give One Happy Meals,”
Empowering Families to Help Feed those in Need in their Local Community through McDonald’s --

 

 McDonald’s restaurants in the Coastal Carolina Co-Op* are launching a new program that empowers families to give a meal to a local child who does not know from where his or her next meal is coming, with McDonald’s picking up the tab.  In January, the U.S. Census Bureau released that 16 million—or one in five children—were on food stamps in 2014, the highest number since the nation’s economy tumbled in 2008.** McDonald’s “Buy One, Give One Happy Meal” program inspires families to purchase a Happy Meal, and with that purchase, McDonald’s will donate a second Happy Meal to a local food bank organization to give to a local child who is food insecure.

 

 “Through Buy One, Give One Happy Meals, we at McDonald’s can do our part to provide these children in need with a meal, and also empower our customers to be part of the giving and understand the problem they are helping address, ” said Chris Valdes, local McDonald’s owner/operator.    

 

The Buy One, Give One Happy Meal program takes place on the first Monday of the month at all participating McDonald’s restaurants in the Coastal Carolina Co-Op** starting in April and running through September.  (Monday April 6th, Monday May 4th, Monday June 1st, Monday July 6th, Monday August 3rd, Monday Sept. 7th). 

--more--

 

For each Happy Meal purchase made on the first Monday of the month from April through September 2015,McDonald’s will donate Happy Meal redemption cards to several local non-profit organizations that collectively reach all counties the McDonald’s Coastal Carolina Co-Op.*

 

Children are encouraged to be part of the giving through Buy One, Give One Happy Meal by writing their name on a paper cutout which will be posted in the restaurant then provided to the partner organizations along with the Happy Meal redemption cards so families can “feel the love” from their fellow community members.

 

“No other product represents children and food quite like a Happy Meal, and now more than ever, Happy Meals provide wholesome choices such as apple slices, low-fat yogurt, and low-fat or fat-free milk,” said Valdes. “We are committed to being a good neighbor and because of our breadth throughout the area, we are in a unique position to help address this need in our community.”

 

McDonald’s of the Coastal Carolina Co-Op* will be giving away at least 30,000 Happy Meals over the course of the Buy One, Give One Happy Meal program.

* McDonald’s of Coastal Carolina Co-Op includes restaurants in the Florence, SC Co-Op, Myrtle Beach, SC Co-Op, and Wilmington, NC Co-Op serving Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, Darlington, Dillon, Georgetown, Florence, Horry, Marion, Marlboro, New Hanover, Pender, Robeson, Scotland, Williamsburgcounties.

Stand Down at the Beach welcomes help for all veterans

 
Stand Down at the Beach, a day to help veterans in need, is set for this fall.

At a press conference Wednesday, organizers announced September 18 as the event date.

Stand Down has many purposes, but the main goal is to end veteran homelessness, once and for all.

"The second is to give these veterans the benefits that they deserve and need, and the third is for those that we can't, and don't want to get off the streets, to give them the things they do need to survive on the streets,” AARP Director of Community Outreach Doris Gleason said.

The premise behind Stand Down Myrtle Beach is simply to provide services to veterans in need, that includes: dental, medical, counseling, and housing assistance, adding up to nearly 50 agencies available, that day.

There will also be food, non-perishables and even clothing vouchers.

Agencies involved expect about 100 volunteers. 

It's an event open to all veterans, but targeted to those without a place to live, or at risk of losing their homes.

This is the second year for the event, and those involved, including AARP, Horry Georgetown Tech, and Veterans Welcome home, to name a few, are hoping for continued success.

Last year, the event had about 200 vets show up and this year, organizers are expecting more.

The bottom line,  it's our time, to give back to those who serve our country.

"The give so much to us, they deserve it,” said Gleason.


If you want to donate, some items needed are:

non-perishable foods

white crew socks for men

ladies tank tops

baby wipes

travel sized personal care items

gently used clothing

and VOLUNTEERS


Location :  U.S. Army Reserve at 3392 Phillis Blvd. at the Market Commons in Myrtle Beach.
