On Friday, December 4, Presiding Elder Remus Harper, Jr., Mrs. Tanya Harper, Area Consultant, along with the Rev. Bernice D. Cooper made a donation of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to the Williamsburg County School District on behalf of the pastors, pastors’ spouses and members of the Kingstree District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The presentation consisted of 1,800 child-sized and 500 adult-sized facial masks. The donation was provided to assist with safeguarding the students in the Williamsburg County School District during the COVID-19 crisis.
Under the leadership of Presiding Elder Remus Harper, Jr., this year’s donation to the Williamsburg County School District is part of what has become an ongoing mission of the AME churches in the Kingstree District to annually support the schools by providing supplies. Last year’s donation consisted of classroom supplies such as pencils, notebooks, paper, crayons, and other items.
The Kingstree District is comprised of 37 AME Churches located in Williamsburg, Florence, Berkeley, and Charleston counties. Presiding Elder Remus Harper, Jr., supervises the work in the Kingstree District AME churches. The Right Rev. Samuel L. Green, Sr., serves as Bishop of the Seventh Episcopal District of the AME Church in South Carolina.
