Old Market Square in Easley

Each winter, United Christian Ministries provides financial help to Pickens County &  Powdersville area residents who simply cannot afford to heat their homes due to an emergency, such as sudden job loss, or limited resources. Imagine the plight of the elderly person living on a fixed monthly income below the poverty level. Winter arrives, the temperatures drop, and the cost to have her heating fuel delivered exceeds three hundred fifty dollars! Or, she resorts to using an open oven or old space heater to stay warm causing her electric bill to skyrocket. Whether you’re running or walking, your participation in our 11th annual Feet for Heat race will help keep someone warm this winter!
