Trinity United Methodist Women donate to local ministries

By Samantha Lyles, Staff Writer, slyles@newsandpress.net

Trinity United Methodist Women gave some very welcome help to three hardworking local ministries last week, presenting each organization with a check for $1,000 to help with their programs. Trinity Women raised funds for these donations through a very successful chicken bog dinner where 600 tickets were sold.

“We did that with the purpose of giving everything we made to the local missions here in Darlington – The Free Medical Clinic, Kids Closet, and The Lord Cares,” says Linda Brunson, president of Trinity United Methodist Women. “We want to support our local missions and give back to the Darlington community, and we’re thankful to everyone who came out and supported the chicken bog fundraiser.”
