Thanks to the generous donations form our wonderful supporters, along with big help from the South Carolina chapter of Al Sharpton's National Action network, this year over 100 children in Allendale will be riding their new bikes. Riding a bike is something that should be a part of being a kid… for everyone.
After a year away from Emma's house because of the Pandemic, the kids return. Many of the activities are outdoors.
February saw the unveiling of the huge Thank You message made of 8-foot tall letters painted by artist Sophie Docalovich.

The purpose of the mural is to make a bold statement to thank all of the hard working health care workers, town employees, and others who kept working during the Pandemic to keep the town and the county up and running.
