This summer, 100 open sites – like churches, schools, community centers, and park and recreation departments – throughout Charleston County are serving free summer meals to kids and teens. These sites are open to the community; and that means any child can walk in to one of these sites to eat a free breakfast or lunch during the summer. To find a site near you, click here!
Students at Buist met with Mayor Keith Summey, Officer Shelor with Charleston PD, and Engine 103 Firefighters from Charleston FD to learn more about civic service in Charleston. Students also handcrafted cards of appreciation to give to our local police and firefighters for their brave service to keep us safe from harm each and every day!
