Unfortunately, 2020 has been a challenge for the committee, with COVID-19 preventing the hosting of annual events that are usually conducted to secure financial resources to assist with the facilities up-keep. Individuals and groups interested in contributing to the project may do so by making checks payable to the Cherry Hill Community Center, P. O. Box 783, Moncks Corner, SC 29461 or donate via Givelify: https://giv.li/7i4qzf.

Committee officers, Yvonne Knight-Carter, chair; Walton Jones, vice chair; Sylvia Rose, secretary; Cathy Cooper, financial secretary; Doris Ellington, treasurer; Flora Gethers, chaplain, and Vera Young, public relations, are working to ensure the center’s presence as a viable and assessable historic facility.
