Gamecocks have Thanksgiving dinner with Epworth kids

COLUMBIA, SC ( South Carolina has its biggest game of the year to prepare for but on Thursday, the coaches and players spent time with youth from Epworth Children's Home over Thanksgiving Dinner.

Epworth Children's Home, which was established in 1896, is for children from 4 to 18 years of age who come from broken family systems. Their mission is to serve children, youth and families through a caring, accepting and safe Christian community, where hurts are healed; hope is nurtured; and faith in God self and others is developed.

The football program has sponsored the event for several years.

"Our players look forward to it and the coaches do, too," Spurrier said. "Hopefully the Epworth kids have a good time as we have Thanksgiving with them."
