BAMBERG – In April, the United Way Association of South Carolina announced that the Cheez and Cracker Box of Bamberg was awarded a $5,000 grant to support its mission of providing emergency assistance to families in need.
Cheez and Cracker Box Chairman and Bamberg County Councilman Trent Kinard led the grant application process to the United Way Association.
“While we started the grant application prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s never been a greater need for emergency food, clothing, and household necessities than now,” Kinard said. “The Cheez and Cracker Box is grateful for this grant funding that will allow us to provide the supplies our families need during this unprecedented time. We thank the United Way Association of South Carolina for supporting the Cheez and Cracker Box and its important work for our community.”
The Cheez and Cracker Box is a 501c3 non-profit organization with a mission to provide emergency assistance to citizens in need in Bamberg County and beyond. They accept donations of gently used clothing, household items such as linens and towels, and non-perishable foods.
