Williams & Fudge employees raise $5,000 in 90 minutes for Christians to Feed the Hungry
ROCK HILL, SC — The Thanksgiving season will hopefully be a little bit brighter for some of York County’s most vulnerable homeless and shut-ins next week.
Rock Hill-based Williams & Fudge raised more than $5,000 for Christians to Feed the Hungry during the company’s Thanksgiving dinner held Thursday, catered by Scout Troop 925. The funds are a combination of employee contributions given during the annual lunch and the generosity of the Williams Family.
Christians to Feed The Hungry, led by the Rev. Ronal King, feeds more than 6,000 people in need daily across York, Chester, Lancaster and Gaston Counties. Next Thursday, the non-profit will organize the the mass preparation of a Thanksgiving dinner for the community. Turkeys are cooked by volunteers in their own homes and meals are assembled and prepped by a small army of volunteers, including Williams & Fudge employees.
Next month, Williams & Fudge charitable efforts continue with the company’s annual Bike Race. Following a short pedal-less sprint, hundreds of bicycles purchased by Williams & Fudge employees via contributions and fundraisers are delivered to Toys for Happiness campaign serving local children.
“Our employees are our family, and our family strongly believes in helping those in our community who need it the most,” said Williams & Fudge president David Williams. “Whether it’s chipping in funds to help Rev. King feed families next week, or helping Santa gather bikes for children at Christmas, it’s the right thing to do.”
Volunteers interested in helping serve meals with Rev. King’s group may do so on Thanksgiving morning (November 28) at 8 a.m. at Illumine Church (1262 Riverchase Blvd, Rock Hill, SC) or by calling Rev. King at 803.417.3881.
