Thornwell Children's Home is located in Clinton, South Carolina. Thornwell Children's Home is a safe place for children to live if their family cannot or will not take care of them. Thornwell also provides hope for hurting children and families in other ways; through fostering programs; academic programs and community-based outreach programs, kindergarten readiness, after-school and summer programs; professional counseling and therapy, independent living programs, family skill-building programs. In 2016, Thornwell served 1,901 children and families from the South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida area in the above ways. Your donation on November 26th helps provide care to these children and their families through Thornwell. Please prayerfully consider a gift to Thornwell! There will be offering envelopes in your bulletin on the 26th, and also Turkey Coin collectors for the young at heart.
