Tuesday’s Thoughtful Way to Serve Others ~ A Place for Hope

I can honestly say that I never truly realized that many of our neighbors live in third world conditions…but they DO!  This past Saturday, I was privileged to visit with some of the residents on Blackmon Road in Rock Hill, SC.  For decades, Blackmon Road has been a magnet for York County’s poor. The community lies at the end of a dirt road off S.C. 72, less than two miles from downtown Rock Hill. Many residents are squatters who live in crumbling shacks or old school buses with no indoor plumbing or electricity.  “A Place for Hope” is a non-profit community center in the heart of the Blackmon Road community.  The center helps by tutoring neighborhood kids and adults and providing food & supplies for area residents. 

Ways you can help:

  • Volunteer to help with tutoring, food pantry, clothing pantry, and many other ways to give of your time to help this community.
  • Donate food, clothing, personal items, home repair items, office supplies, etc.  A ‘wish list’ of items they are needing can be found on their website.
