902 Second Loop Road
Florence, SC 29501 United States
+ Google Map

Dust off your legwarmers and headband, get out your favorite tube socks, dress in your wildest 80s style and resolve to get physical in 2017.

Your support positively impacts the lives of area adults functioning at low literacy levels.
1 out of every 3 adults in Florence County is functionally illiterate. This means that they are unable to fill out a job application, read instructions on a prescription label, or help their children with homework. Illiteracy not only creates a barrier for the illiterate adult, but also for their families, as illiteracy often passes from generation to generation. ”. The Florence Area Literacy Council offers classes for basic literacy, English literacy, the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) preparation and Pre-GED preparation. Adult learners have the opportunity to work with a tutor, in small groups, as well as computer lab instruction ensuring that they receive the maximum benefit from their instruction time at the Council.

Half Marathon Start time is 8AM
5K Run Walk start time is 9AM

We are excited to announce the 1st annual Run for Hope 5K Run/Walk sponsored by the Realtor Association of the Greater Pee Dee. We would like to invite you to join us for this special day. This event, benefitting the New Courtney McGinnis Graham Community Homeless Shelter, is raising funds to provide emergency shelter and services for the local homeless men, women, and children in the Florence Community.

The New Courtney McGinnis Graham Community Shelter was named after Courtney McGinnis Graham for her tireless efforts to help the homeless. Courtney's passion and selfless love for the homeless was evident as she was used to bring light, life and hope to those in need. She provided a warm meal, safe shelter, or words of encouragement to those in need. Homeless children gripped her heart, and her persistent tenacity always helped to find them a place to stay. While she ministered to their needs, Courtney longed to have a place for them to call home. Her ministry to homeless men, women and children continues to be an inspiration to our community and her vision surpassed her life. In her memory, the Courtney McGinnis Graham Community Shelter was opened October 17, 2016. Daily the shelter serves 30 men, women and children.

Most citizens of the Florence Community do not realize that homelessness is an issue. Each day there are over 400 homeless men, women and children in the Florence community. Of the homeless population over 100 are unsheltered,. Many are women and children. The Community Shelter offers a safe shelter, food, clothing and case management services to those that come seeking a place to rest their head.
