Williams & Fudge Employees Raise $5,000 in 90 minutes for Christians to Feed the Hungry

The Thanksgiving season will hopefully be a little bit brighter for some of the most vulnerable homeless people in York County, South Carolina thanks to efforts of ACA International member company Williams & Fudge Inc.

Williams & Fudge, based in Rock Hill, raised more than $5,000 for Christians to Feed the Hungry during the company’s recent Thanksgiving dinner, catered by Boy Scout Troop 925. The funds are a combination of employee contributions given during the annual lunch and the generosity of the Williams family, according to a news release.

Christians to Feed the Hungry, led by the Rev. Ronal King, feeds more than 6,000 people in need daily across York, Chester, Lancaster and Gaston counties.

On Thanksgiving, the non-profit will organize the mass preparation of a Thanksgiving dinner for the community. Turkeys are cooked by volunteers in their own homes and meals are assembled and prepped by a small group of volunteers, including Williams & Fudge employees.

In December, Williams & Fudge charitable efforts continue with the company’s annual bike race. Following a short pedal-less sprint, hundreds of bicycles purchased by Williams & Fudge employees via contributions and fundraisers are delivered to Toys for Happiness campaign serving local children.

“Our employees are our family, and our family strongly believes in helping those in our community who need it the most,” said Williams & Fudge President David Williams. “Whether it’s chipping in funds to help Rev. King feed families next week, or helping Santa gather bikes for children at Christmas, it’s the right thing to do.”
