Foster Care Center completes rennovations
COLUMBIA - After five years, the Boys and Girls Town of Columbia is finally complete.
The Columbia Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday afternoon for the foster care center.
Donors and volunteers toured renovated cottages, new walkways, a new pavillion to play sports and even ate in a new dining hall.
"Without, their support, both financially and through hours of volunteer, and supporting our mission with what we're doing with out children, we really could not have made this happen," says Boys and Girls Town spokesperson Paula Fleming. "So, we are very, very grateful for everything we've received."
Currently, 50 children live in the Boys and Girls Town and have already started using the new amenities.
