On March 12, Columbia County Cares, in conjunction with the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, had a ribbon-cutting ceremony to dedicate Columbia County Cares' new storage building in Appling.
All of us here at CCCI want to give thanks and glory to God for all the blessings He has bestowed on us. In particular, we want to give Him thanks for our county residents and all of our leaders and administrators. Columbia County does care.
This new facility has a walk-in freezer, a walk-in cooler and additional storage area, which is greatly needed at CCCI. We will be using this as our receiving area and bulk storage of non-perishable items.
There were many responsible for helping us make this facility a reality. We first want to say thanks to all the taxpayers of our great county. Next, we thank Commission Chairman Ron Cross, Commissioner Lee Anderson, and all the commissioners, who without their support this project could never have occurred.
A grant from the Communities Foundation of the CSRA enabled us to acquire the walk-in-freezer/cooler. Norvell Fixtures made it possible to stay within our budget. We would be completely remiss if we didn't mention Chip Mobley and his Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax construction staff for their effort on this project.
There are just so many that pitched in to make this a successful project, that we are sure we cannot mention them all. But please rest assured that we are thankful for each and every one of them.
Last but not least we want to say thank you to all of our volunteers at Columbia County Cares who come from our supporting churches and unselfishly dedicate themselves to helping the less fortunate of our county. It is truly a privilege and honor to be associated with such loving and caring people.
Please Lord, continue to bless the ministry of Columbia County Cares, Amen.
