Local non-profits work together

Published 4:17 pm Thursday, November 17, 2011

Leaders of three local non-profit organizations recently met over lunch. Carol Newton of Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (left), Jean Eckert of Hospice of the Carolina Foothills (center) and Rachel Ramsey of Steps to HOPE discussed ways they are working together to help meet the community’s needs. Among the topics they discussed was the 2011 initiative begun by Hospice of the Carolina Foothills: Jeans for Charity. On the first Friday of each month, HoCF staff members contribute at least $1 for the privilege of wearing jeans to work. Two of the charities selected this year to receive the proceeds, nominated by HoCF staff, were Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry and Steps to HOPE. (photo submitted by Marsha Van Hecke)
