Hi Neighbors! We've officially moved to Marion County, SC! Last year we hosted the first toy drive in Marion County, SC to a huge success.

Let us tell you a little about Marion County. First its a wonderful place just about an hour away from Myrtle Beach, SC. In the 20th century Marion County became a major tobacco growing region. Great cities with even better locals, passing through Marion County you will always be greeted by locals with a smile and a story. However, this area has a poverty level of 26% which is higher than the national average of 14%.
Stay tuned as we provide you with more updates on this years events and updates! For now check out some of the pictures from the first event in 2017.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to celebrating the season with you again!
