Hundreds attend free food donation event in McBee

Capital Support Consulting and Business Service and TS Wallace Faith and Financial hosted a free food donation community event at McBee Elementary.

Capital Support Consulting and Business Service and TS Wallace Faith and Financial hosted a free food donation community event at McBee Elementary Saturday.

Karen Gillespie went to the event with her granddaughter and mother to fill up boxes of food. The boxes are taken back to those at their church who need a little bit of help.

Everyone was welcome, and they also packed boxes and bags of food to take home.

Tinisha Wallace started setting up donation events about 6 months ago, and Saturday's event was the 7th stop. Her business donates all the food.

Gillespie and Willie Mae Roary say it means a lot for someone to come to their community and help.

"Things like this, it helps the community out," Gillespie said. "Its wonderful, it warms my heart."

"There’s so many of us that need help and we do not get it. This provides food for people that really need it for young, old and small kids and older people in the community and we appreciate it so much," Mae Roary said.

The organizers aren’t sure where their next stop will be, but they do plan to go to Darlington in December and hold a similar event.
