Good Friends at DeBordieu!

Good Friends is my favorite local charity! It’s an organization of women committed to raising money in order to provide financial assistance to individuals who are disadvantaged or in need in Georgetown County, SC. GF Mel maryanne and Ilka
GOOD FRIENDS hosts an annual December Luncheon – one hour on one day-when the women of Georgetown County Gather for a lovely holiday occasion unlike any other.  The Luncheon is a celebration of music, flowers and FRIENDS.  (last year there were even dancers!) Hundreds of women gather one time a year for a single purpose-to be a FRIEND to someone we do not know but someone whose life will be changed through our FRIENDSHIP.
GF invitation 2013

I’m particularly excited this year, because this is the first year the annual luncheon will be held at the DeBordieu Clubhouse!
100% of the money raised by GOOD FRIENDS is administered by Georgetown County Department Of Social Services
GF Leigh's table
to supplement services to people in a desperate situation who are not eligible for State assistance.  Without GOOD FRIENDS they would otherwise “Fall through the cracks.”
Although GOOD FRIENDs is a relatively new organization in Georgetown County it is modeled after an organization of men called Good Fellows that began in 1917.  A female counterpart was Established in 1987 in Charlotte.  Jenks Trotter was instrumental in founding GOOD FRIENDS of Georgetown County in 2000. GFSanta
In the last twelve years, women of Georgetown County have contributed Over $435,000 to positively impact the lives of people in need who live in our community.  A contribution to GOOD FRIENDS is an unconditional gift to help someone you don’t even know without expectations for anything in return- a true gift from the heart.

♥         It may be the elderly woman who had no heat in her trailer but was able to get an adequate heater and no longer has to use her oven for heat.
♥          It may be the mother who was able to buy coats, hats and boots for her children so they could go to school in frigid temperatures.

Because of GOOD  FRIENDS, there are many heart-warming stories that make our community a better place.  But there are more people in desperate situations that ever before and we need EVERY WOMAN AND MAN in Georgetown County to get involved.
