Tourist uses vacation time to give back to the Grand Strand
Myrtle Beach, SC (WPDE) —
A snow bird that does more than vacation in Myrtle Beach; she gives back to the community she is not even a part of.
"I think a lot of people come in, not only enjoy seeing the different crafts that people were making but also knowing this is going to a really great cause," said Paula Tripp, owner of Dog Tied.
Everyone who came to the Craft Fair Food Drive donated food or money to the Low Country Food Bank and all 100 vendors donated food for a spot at the fair in the Myrtle Beach Rec Center.
"This is the time that I think a lot of people get forgotten about needing food at this time of year," said Tripp.
"People shouldn't be hungry, it's not right," said Mickey Davis, who organizes the event.
Mickey Davis is the brains behind it all and she is not even from the Grand Strand, she just likes visiting about four months out of the year.
"If you see a need and you can fill it, then do it," said Davis.
This is the fair's fourth year and they had almost 2,000 people come out.
If you are interested in donating to the Low Country Food Bank, you can visit them at 200 Broadway Street in Myrtle Beach.
