GRACE & GLORY Uptown recently held a “Chicks for Chicks” fundraising event to benefit World Vision (www.worldvision.org). Through this event, GRACE & GLORY, Beaufort’s largest women’s boutique, was able to donate more than 50 chickens to hungry families in Africa.
Why chickens? Fresh eggs raise the levels of protein and other nutrients in a family’s diet. The sale of extra eggs and chickens can pay for vital basics like rice, milk and school supplies. Finally, families can sell the offspring for extra income or share them with other families in need.
The event was a huge success, supported by many women in the community who came out to support the cause. Cindy Turnbull, owner of GRACE & GLORY Uptown, offers a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to this worthy charity.
GRACE & GLORY Uptown is located at 1029A Boundary Street in Beaufort. The women’s boutique carries a large selection of women’s clothing, shoes, accessories and home goods. The boutique is open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call the store at 843-521-4050 or friend them on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/GraceandGloryUptown.
