This was our 12th year and our best so far......our collections totaled 25,084 lbs., a 21% increase over 2015, bringing our grand total to just under 200,000 lbs. since this ministry began in July of 2005.
From the wonderful publicity we have received from TV, newspapers, magazines and word of mouth, others have started similar programs along the coasts of North Carolina and South Carolina, as well as other vacation spots throughout the United States. Kudos to all for being so proactive in their endeavors.
And to the many generous and compassionate donors and the dedicated volunteers from Holden Beach Chapel and Sharon United Methodist Church, heartfelt thanks for making it all possible.
