FLORENCE, S.C. – United ’74 is still seeking donations and contributions for its annual Room for One More campaign.
The distribution of the gifts to children 16 and under is scheduled for 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the New Life Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ at 1010 Douglas St. in Florence. Saturday will also feature a home-cooked Christmas meal and the distribution of care packages to families receiving gifts. The packages will include canned goods, fresh fruits and vegetables.
This year, the event will serve 84 children.
The church’s fellowship hall is transformed into a decorated Christmas wonderland to help the children and families experience the Christmas season.
The event was created to offer hope to the underprivileged and work toward unity in the community.
