Red Cross expresses thanks to community
I was with the Red Cross at Barnwell Elementary and I would like to say “Thank you!” Barnwell County has a wonderful community that came together to take care of each other and the evacuees.
I would especially like to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to DSS because they were my lifesaver. Also to the deputies that were with us around the clock!
I cannot express in words my heartfelt thank you to the following:
-Hagood Avenue Baptist Church for supplies/ food
-Save the Children
-M&M Glass Service
-Barnwell First Baptist Church for supplies/ food
-Coley Creech for the showers/First Baptist Church
-Kenneth Creech, Barnwell Elementary custodian. They have the best who take care of their school. You are awesome.
-Calvary Baptist Church for supplies and thank you to the pastor for talking with our evacuees.
-Ned Branch Baptist Church for so many goodie bags and supplies. Also, thanks to your pastor for being there and speaking with those who wanted to talk.
-Culbert Branch Baptist Church
-Ashleigh Baptist Church
-Barnwell Band Boosters
-Robin Gable, RN
-Second Baptist Church
-Wal-Mart of Barnwell
I’m sorry I can’t even write everything that was brought in by these wonderful people and there were so many individuals that brought in items. I have not put a dent in the names and items that were brought.
Thank you, too, Roger Riley, Mrs. Williams and Steve Ray whom I was in contact with at the emergency operations center.
Those that I know brought food, coffee, etc., please know that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry I can’t remember all the names. To those that I haven’t mentioned above, please forgive me.
But the main person that needs to know already knows - our God above.
