Making a difference


Workers participating in The Salkehatchie Summer Service are in the Williamton, Pelzer and Piedmont areas this week making improvements to a number of houses. The program is a pioneering servant ministry involving high school and college age youth, adult community leaders and persons of different cultures in upgrading housing, motivating community cooperative efforts by helping persons to help themselves, and providing participants with opportunities for personal growth and service.The program consists of a number of work camps for United Methodist Youth in South Carolina. During the week participants physically improve homes of needy families and reach out to these families and one another in friendship. Wren High School hosts the Salkehatchie workers while they are in the area.
