Elaine Adkins is excited to have a $5,000 donation to help feed hungry families this holiday season.
Adkins, executive director of HOPE in Lancaster, recently accepted a $5,000 grant award from BI-LO Charities. HOPE is a local organization that provides food and help with utility bills for local families.
Adkins traveled to Columbia on Nov. 15 for a special BI-LO holiday event, though at the time she had no idea HOPE would be awarded grant money. Adkins applied for the grant earlier this year.

Thanksgiving is a holiday when we traditionally gather with family and friends for a big feast. It’s a time when we Americans give thanks for what we have – our health, our family, the roof overheads, the job that pays the bills, etc.

The sun was rising over the eastern horizon and daylight was burning. It was almost picture show time at the Imperial Theater on Main Street and the coins in my pocket were about to burn a hole in my britches.
