Pee Dee and Piedmont Reflection

            The Pee Dee office was blessed to work with many like-minded agencies and individuals this year. To meet the employees and volunteers that work in the Pee Dee office, please read these posts. One of our clients from the Pee Dee area shared this with us:

“I would like to express sincere appreciation to you and your organization for making it possible for me to have new beautiful teeth. You have done so much for me, and I am sure many others in need. I have no words to express my gratitude. May God continue to bless you as you advocate and serve humanity, and go forth as a wonderful instrument for His goodness.”

The Piedmont office added new programs and gained new employees in 2012. You may learn more about this office and the employees who oversee it here. This office continued to partner with agencies and businesses in the Upstate of South Carolina to meet the variety of needs that their clients have.

“A woman came into our office one day to ask about the Save-A-Smile program. She shared that her body and face were burned in an accident a few years ago and, due to the severity of the burns, she lost her hair and teeth. When she started the process of getting dentures, we found out that she needed a facial dental specialist due to the severity of the damage in her mouth. She was very sad and concerned about finding a way to pay for the procedures. I told her to put God in front of all and let him take care of the situation.  A couple of months later she called and told me that she found a specialist! She was happy and hopeful again. I spoke with our regional coordinator and we decided to financially help her. The doctor was also very generous and helped her make payment arrangements and gave her a discount. After she had the surgery and got the dentures, she came back to the office. It was like a completely different person was in our office! Even her hair was different and the expressions of her face were bright again. She hugged me and started to cry. This was one of the most wonderful experiences I have had since becoming a Client Advocate for Catholic Charities.”

We hope you have enjoyed hearing these stories from our different offices. 2012 was a wonderful year for Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Charleston, Inc. and we are very excited to see what 2013 has in store!
