McCORMICK, S.C. – A group from the Edgefield Baptist Men’s Association recently spent a day at John de la Howe School rebuilding a set of steps and repairing a deck at the school’s Wilderness Program dining hall.
This group of volunteers has also been responsible over the years for providing other opportunities for students in the program, including deer hunts, an annual wild game supper, a barn raising for the equestrian program and a fun day filled with unique activities.
On Nov. 9, the group will sponsor a shooting day at the National Wild Turkey Federation in Edgefield.
“The John de la Howe Wilderness Program is grateful to all the men and women with the association for contributing to the success of our young people,” said Tim Wines, assistant director of the Wilderness Program.
Established in 1797 and the oldest institution in South Carolina, John de la Howe School offers a safe haven for children grades 6-12 to heal, grow and make lasting changes.
