The Sisters thanked the Foundation for investing $198,000 in grant funds over the last 16 years. The funds have helped with the Center’s Clothes Closet, Afterschool Tutoring Program, and Food Pantry. It has also helped with the purchase of furnishings such as a freezer and computers. More than 80 people, including many Felician Center volunteers, attended the event.

“You planted the seeds that have grown through this Center and God’s people have been fed, clothed, learned, made well, and kept safe” said Sister Susanne. The Felician Center is part of the Foundation’s Collaboration for Ministry Initiative and has served hundreds of needy people in the Kingstree area for many years.
