Theresa White, CEO of the non-profit Pan-African Family Empowerment & Land Preservation Network, submitted Sun City Hilton Head resident Marty Raffone’s photo of him and his wife, Diane, delivering donations bound for Liberia to the historic Campbell Chapel A.M.E. Church in Bluffton.

Diane’s Raffone’s appeal to her fellow members of the Family Slide Dancers of Sun City resulted in the largest single donation to the collection drive initiated by students at Savannah State University. White organized five Beaufort County collection sites for donations in support of SSU’s “Operation SHEA” otherwise known as Sending Humanitarian Education Abroad. The shipment of supplies that will help families recovering from Ebola is expected to arrive in West Africa in April.
