Pee Dee Office Update

As you may know, the Pee Dee Office of Catholic Charities has temporarily closed. We are moving as quickly as possible to seek a new location and will keep you informed of the progress on this very positive project. At this time, we ask for everyone's continued prayers and support as we proceed. We would also like to extend a huge thank-you to the parishes of the Pee Dee who are supporting us during this time of transition, specifically those in Horry County who have allowed us to work out of their locations as needed. You have made this challenging time of growth far easier.

The strategic planning process underway within Catholic Charities throughout the Diocese requires that we examine a number of parameters being used to deliver services to those in need. One consistent red flag has been that we are not available in some locations that would maximize our abilities to increase both the number and quality of services. Therefore, it is our intention to do an in depth analysis of the entire Pee Dee region and choose a location that will allow us to expand in the very best area.

Pee Dee clients and volunteers at a parish that has allowed us to temporarily use their facilities.

These clients and volunteers are participating in the Commodity Supplemental Food Program. It is a USDA food and nutrition program administered by the South Carolina Department of Human Services (SCDHS). Through this program, senior citizens receive monthly nutritious food in packages, nutrition and health information.

If you would like to know what assistance the Pee Dee office is currently offering, please call 843-234-1999 and leave a message. To donate to the Pee Dee office, please visit our website here.

Thank you all for your prayers and support and we hope to have exciting news soon about our next steps!
