The Gullah Geechee Initiative Foundation (GGIF) hosted “A Day of Thanks & Giving” on Saturday, Nov. 21 at the Beaufort County Black Chamber of Commerce at 711 Bladen Street.

GGIF’s goal was to provide a turkey – along with food items typically used in preparing a Thanksgiving meal – to 100 individuals/households.

GGIF is a nonprofit organization that provides programs to promote cultural enrichment, character development, academic excellence, athletics, and community outreach programs to residents living in the Lowcountry.

In a release, GGIF founder Kamal Mandela Wigfall said “in the midst of a pandemic, we still have so much to be thankful for. God’s grace and mercies continue to surround us daily during these difficult times and assure us of brighter days ahead. Let us use this opportunity to remember the least among us, and where we can, let us assist our brother or sister.
