Yeamans Park Presbyterian Church is a distribution site on August 4, 2014, beginning at 4:00pm for the Charleston Atlantic Presbytery sponsored "Hands of Christ." The mission of Hands of Christ is to bring Presbyterian Church (USA) congregations together to meet the basic needs of children. The common goal is to provide school uniforms and basic school supplies to needy students in Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester and Williamsburg Counties. This project is a meaningful way to reach out to those in need within our community.
