Shriners make donation to senior citizens group

  • Monday, January 14, 2013


The Shrine Jeddah Temple 160 out of Orangeburg chose Berkeley Seniors in Moncks Corner as its recipient for the temple’s annual donation for 2012.
The Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine has been active in South Carolina since 1965.
“We feel it’s important to give to those in need,” said Jeddah Shrine Temple Illustrious Potentate Pervis Scott. “And it’s important to care and provide for our elderly citizens who maybe can no longer provide for themselves.”
Pervis and other members of Jeddah Temple 160 recently presented a check to Berkeley Seniors Executive Director Tonya Sweatman.
“We are extremely grateful for the generous donation made by the Jeddah Shrine Temple,” said Sweatman. “More than half the U.S. population is now made up of senior citizens.”
Berkeley Seniors Inc. is a private, non-profit organization that receives financial support from Berkeley County Government, local civic organizations, individual contributions and the South Carolina Division of Senior Services.
Berkeley Seniors provides a variety of services for the elderly and disabled and is eligible to those individuals age 60 or above and their spouses.
Services include the delivery of in-home meals, in-home care, wellness activities and lunch services in Berkeley Seniors’ centers in Moncks Corner, Goose Creek and St. Stephen.
The organization serves a total of 600 seniors in Berkeley County.
