Scoop Some Soup Fundraiser
Clean Start of Anderson, a hygiene and resource center, hosts its 13th annual “Scoop Some Soup” fundraiser on Thursday, February 27 at their 219 Townsend Street headquarters. The public can purchase tickets for dine-in or carry-out meals to be served from 11:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Free meal delivery is available for groups of 10 or more supporters, but delivery orders must be placed by February 24, 2020.
“Scoop Some Soup” is the only fundraiser held each year for Clean Start. Each meal includes vegetable soup or chili with cornbread or crackers, dessert and tea. Ticket prices are $7 per meal. Supporters can call (864) 716-0766 to purchase tickets. All proceeds will support Clean Start’s mission to help those living on the streets to clean up and start again. By offering laundering services, clothing and hygiene supplies, the non-profit encourages clients to better themselves. Recipients feel empowered, knowing someone values and cares about them.
Serving 100-150 clients per week, Clean Start washes about 45 weekly loads of laundry, allows clients to bathe or shave in on-site showers, and supplies new or gently used clothing. In addition, they offer referrals for additional Anderson area assistance, as well as telephone and mailing services.
