South Carolina Lutheran Men in Mission Pee Dee Indian Project

South Carolina Lutheran Men in Mission Pee Dee Indian Project

The Pee Dee Tribe is located in northeast South Carolina. It was chartered in 1976 and finally became a State recognized Indian Tribe on August 29, 2006. The Tribe consists of 532 members who mostly live and work in Marlboro, Chester and Darlington counties. The Pee Dee Indians are a proud people, and they have a great heritage. Unfortunately, many live at or below the poverty level. They have operated their tribal affairs on three acres of land in McColl, South Carolina for many years. Since achieving State recognition in 2006, the Tribe has initiated several projects to help serve its members. A lack of funds has stymied the initiatives of the Tribe. Recently, due to the generosity of an individual donor, the Pee Dee Tribe received a donation of 14 acres of land. Shortly thereafter, the South Carolina Lutheran Men in Mission (SCLMM) organization entered the picture.
During the Spring of 2015, the SCLMM Executive Committee voted unanimously to initiate a project to assist the Tribe. This decision came with the support of Bishop Yoos and the South Carolina Synod Council. The SCLMM set a goal to raise $50,000 to help the Pee Dee Indian Tribe construct a multipurpose building on the 14 acres of land that was donated to the Tribe. The plan for the use of this property is to build a multipurpose building that can be used for a medical clinic, a shelter for the homeless, a place for children to play in a safe environment and a building to use for Tribal gatherings and as a museum. The estimated cost is about $280,000. If the SCLMM is successful ($50,000), it will provide a nice boost to this initiative. As of early 2016, $10,716 of the $50,000 goal had been raised, so there is a need to expand and increase giving to reach this goal.
The Holy Trinity Lutheran Men in Mission group made an initial contribution to this project in the Fall of 2015 and agreed to provide additional assistance during 2016 and to encourage donation by members of the congregation. The Holy Trinity Men in Mission group encourages members to prayerfully consider personal donations to support this initiative. Your checks can be made out to ELCA South Carolina Synod (designated for Pee Dee Indian Project) or they may be made out to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (designated for Pee Dee Indian Project).
Thank you for considering a donation to this very worthwhile SCLMM initiative.

Will you help?

WILL YOU HELP?

Attention Men and Women of Holy Trinity: As you probably know, our Holy Trinity WELCA Circles provide food to the families of deceased members. Each situation is different, of course, but can be anything from a full meal to light refreshments. Sometimes we find ourselves facing a little difficulty in having enough food for the bereaving families. Because we never know what we might need and because these plans are made on such short notice, would you be willing to help by providing a side dish or dessert to be shared at this time? If you are a non-active WELCA member of Holy Trinity or a man of Holy Trinity, are you willing to be called upon to help out with the meal preparation? We would greatly appreciate your signing up for this service to our church family. As food is needed, you will be contacted by the WELCA President and asked to help out. Please sign your name below and place this form in the offering plate or talk to one of our WELCA Board Members, either in person or by phone: Roz Eckardt at 225-3810, Christa Mollgaard at 225-3660, Edna Moore at 231-6991 or Johnnie Hunnicutt at 261-6248. We thank you and appreciate your willingness to help in these situations. If you have questions, please contact a Board Member.

 

Blood Drive
