Gift helps sustain food program

The Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach would like to thank The Grainger Foundation for its recent generous gift of $10,000 to the Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach. With its commitment it set a wonderful example and demonstrate the power of corporate foundations to effect remarkable change.

W.W. Grainger, on Seaboard Street in Myrtle Beach, is the leading broad line supplier of facilities maintenance products.

This donation to the Community Kitchen was recommended by local W.W. Grainger branch manager Michael Smith and employees Gloria Pratt, Jason Boroos and Jan Vincent. Smith said, "We are proud to assist those who are less fortunate in our community; we understand the important role the Community Kitchen plays in assisting those who are hungry."

Our success and growth over the years can be directly attributed to organizations who donate and also volunteer their time and energy to help improve the lives of others. The mission we hope to sustain for our community would not be possible without the continued generosity of individuals, churches and businesses.

The Community Kitchen is a nonprofit organization that serves 200-300 meals per day to men, women and children. We are at 1411 Mr. Joe White Ave. in the Elizabeth Chapin Patterson Community Assistance Center in the heart of Myrtle Beach. Please feel free to visit our kitchen at any time.

Again, we extend thanks from our staff, board members, and our constituents.

The writers are co-directors of the Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach.
