Hammond Grove Baptist Church Honored With State Award for Volunteer Work at Walton's Vincent Village
North Augusta, SC—Two hundred and eight lunches and Bible studies. Forty-eight shopping trips. And 40-plus hearts touched.
Over the past four years, that is the measure in numbers of the dedication of Hammond Grove Baptist Church to the senior residents of Vincent Village, Walton Rehabilitation Health System’s affordable/accessible living apartment complex in North Augusta.
“Since Vincent Village opened in June 2006, Hammond Grove Baptist Church members have not missed one week of volunteer service to our seniors,” said Beth Miller, Vice President of Community Services for Walton. “They’ve not only adopted us, but our seniors truly consider them a part of the family.”
As a result, Hammond Grove Baptist Church was recently recognized with a South Carolina Housing Achievement Award for their volunteer work. Sponsored by the South Carolina State Housing Finance and Development Authority, the awards are presented annually to recognize outstanding contributions in the area of affordable housing for low and moderate income South Carolinians.
The awards were announced on February 18 during the Palmetto Affordable Housing Forum in Columbia.
