Florence, S.C. (November 21, 2018) - ArborOne Farm Credit is proud to announce the donation of $50,000 to the SC Baptist Convention’s Southern Baptist Disaster Relief organization (SBDR). The funds were presented on Thursday, November 8th when ArborOne hosted a dinner for the volunteers of the SBDR. CEO Kathy Heustess praised the group saying, “ArborOne Farm Credit thanks SBDR and their volunteers for the giving hearts and fortitude that bolster this organization with the strength and determination needed to continue serving its mission”.
Heustess further noted that, “The employees at ArborOne Farm Credit have been working diligently to support local communities in the wake of Hurricane Florence. ArborOne staff has taken an organized phased approach to rallying relief efforts and has been ready and willing to serve others along the way. Efforts consist of collecting and delivering donation items, hosting lunches for farmers, hand delivering patronage checks to customers, selling t-shirts to raise funds for hard hit areas, and partnering with SBDR to mud out flooded homes”.
