Be an angel locally this summer
As we enter the hottest days of summer, all too often the many ministries and caring organizations in Darlington County are forgotten; here are just a few that would greatly appreciate your generosity:
Darlington County Free Medical Clinic
The Free Medical Clinic of Darlington County is an interdenominational Christian ministry that provides free medical care, medications, and pastoral support to Darlington County residents who are ineligible for Medicaid, who are without the financial resources to afford such care, and/or who have no medical insurance.
There are two locations: 203 Grove St., Darlington, SC 29532, and 500 W. Carolina Ave. in Hartsville. Donations may be mailed to the Darlington address, or on their website with their PayPal account. www.freemedicalclinicdc.org, 398-0060.
Darlington County Habitat for Humanity
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Darlington County Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Donations to their ReStores in Darlington and Hartsville help raise funds to build these homes. Donations may be mailed to: Darlington County Habitat for Humanity P.O. Box 1983 120 W. Washington Hartsville, SC 29551-1983 Tel: 383-8500.
The Lord Cares
The Lord Cares ministry has been providing assistance to those in need in the Darlington area- including Darlington, Lamar and Society Hill- for over 25 years. Once a need has been established, The Lord Cares assists people with food, electricity bills, and medical prescriptions and occasionally doctor bills.
Amazingly, The Lord Cares does not ask for donations from Harvest Hope, and has never applied for any state or federal grants and is 100% volunteer operated.
To make a donation, make checks payable to The Lord Cares, and mail to: The Lord Cares Ministry, P. O. Box 1457, Darlington, SC 29540. Their phone number is: 843-395-1001.
Hartsville Interfaith Ministries (HIM)
Over 31 churches currently provide financial support to the organization, which operates a food bank and provides emergency assistance to families and individuals in need from Hartsville and Lydia. Donations may be mailed to: HIM 210 Swift Creek Rd, Hartsville, SC 29550 843- 857-9003
Hartsville Soup Kitchen Mission
Many faithful volunteers of the churches and businesses in the Hartsville area support the mission to serve a hearty hot, nutritious lunch Monday through Friday. To make a donation, make checks payable to Hartsville Soup Kitchen Mission c/o Wesley UMC, 145 E College Avenue, Hartsville, SC, 29550.
