  • Constructed of fiberboard, the foundation of the mobile home was dissolving. The children had to walk over a plank to get to their rooms.

    Maggie Williams, a Shallotte woman raising three grandchildren in her mobile home, needed help to repair the hole in the floor, so she turned to WARM, Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry Inc.

    WARM is a nonprofit that makes homes safer for low-income homeowners, many of whom are elderly or disabled.

    And WARM knew just who to ask for help in Brunswick County.

  • Once a month classic cars roll into the Smithfield Chicken ’N Bar-B-Q in Waterford Village in Leland for Cruise Day. Collectors show off their special vehicles, enjoy discounts on food and a DJ’s tunes, enter a 50-50 raffle and vie for door prizes and trophies—and proceeds benefit the Brunswick County Toy Run.

  • During a Creative Exchange event attended by 65 people on Wednesday, Nov. 9, Sunset River Marketplace art gallery introduced its “Gallery Gals Appetizers!” cookbook, demonstrating three of the appetizers and offering a dozen of the cookbook’s recipes for sampling.

    The Rotary club is appreciative of the support of St. Paul AME Church for the use of its church parking lot. The church is a landmark in Little River, S.C.

  • Are you a teen between the ages of 13-18? Do you enjoy leading and teaching children 5-12 years of age? Do you take pride in your county and want to find ways to help? Do you enjoy being involved with other peers that have the same common goal: to grow in leadership, citizenship, learn new life skills and share what you learn with others? Are you interested in growing your volunteer hours for college, job searches and scholarship opportunities?
    If you have answered yes to one or more of these questions, TiLT might be for you.
