Feet for Heat
Old Market Square in Easley
Each winter season, United Christian Ministries provides financial help to persons throughout Pickens County who simply cannot afford the costs of heating their homes due to an emergency, such as sudden job loss, or limited resources. Imagine the plight of the elderly person existing on a fixed monthly income below the poverty level. Winter arrives, the temperatures drop, and the cost to have their heating fuel delivered exceeds three hundred fifty dollars! Or, they resort to using an open oven or old space heater to stay warm and the electric bill skyrockets. You can help UCM prepare to meet the needs of our neighbors this coming winter. Whether you’re running or walking, your participation in our annual Feet for Heat race will help keep someone warm this winter!
