Well hi, Jack Roper here, we’re at Kelly Acres Apartments here in Woodruff, and we’re about to meet our Caring for the Carolinas award winner for the month of March.
JACKIE MAXWELL – RESIDENT
Darrell comes around every year here, and he does a lot for the children around here. Every holiday he has a party over here for them, during the summer when they’re out of school, he provides a nutritious meal for them, every day that he pays for himself.
JENNIFER JACKSON – RESIDENT
Darrell is an extraordinary individual, he’s out here most of his time, he comes through every day. He visits with the kids, the senior citizens, he makes fruit baskets for the senior citizens, he does a coat drive, he hands out coats. He also funds all this, he pays for it himself, he gives out at least fifty coats to the children.
Hey Darrell, you deal with a lot of kids here in Woodruff. Why do you do what you do?
DARRELL DAWKINS – AWARD WINNER
I just feel that god’s blessed us for every day to help someone. I know what it is to me that’s important. Honestly any community that neglects their children neglects their future.
Let’s pray. Dear Lord I just want to thank you for giving me another day. Thank you for the blessing of these children. Watch over and protect us and we continue to go through this day. Let’s continue to love one another and treat others like we want to be treated.
Thanks to our sponsors, Ingles, Bath Fitter and Hardees, Darrell Dawkins is our Caring for the Carolinas award winner for the month of March. Darrell also receives a free Thickburger, yes from Hardee’s, once a week for a full year. Inspiring and setting an example for the Carolinas family.
