North Augusta church provides free lunch to Clearwater Elementary teachers

  • Updated

BEECH ISLAND — Clearwater Elementary teachers received a free lunch and applause from volunteers with First Baptist Church of North Augusta on Thursday, who set up a Diablo's food truck and drink table outside by the school's cafeteria.

As upbeat pop music played on nearby speakers, Ginger Dickert said she and fellow First Baptist Church members wanted to show appreciation to the teachers by providing the free lunch.

"We came out today to give encouragement to the teachers. We recognize that this is a very difficult time both for the students and the teachers, and we wanted to let them know that we love and appreciate them," Dickert said.
