Community members share lunch, holiday cookies with homeless children

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The children of St. Lawrence Place enjoyed a holiday treat on Tuesday.

Along with members of the community, the children enjoyed lunch and decorated holiday cookies just before Christmas.

The event gave them a chance to recognize community partners and acknowledge all who support the organization.

"We just wanted to let our donors and volunteers see what our children do on a daily basis," said St. Lawrence Place President & CEO Lila Anna Sauls. "So what they're eating is what the children would be eating and taking some campus tours and just kind-of sharing with each other."

St. Lawrence Place, a nonprofit organization that offers homeless families with support services, currently serves 29 families and are working to expand.
