Powdersville Self Storage in Greenville, S.C., is launching a campaign to help feed orphaned children. The self-storage company will sell the Sweet Grace special-edition candle manufactured by Bridgewater Candle Co. during November and December. For every candle purchased, Bridgewater, partnering with the nonprofit organization, Rice Bowls, will make a donation to feed an orphaned child for one week through its project, “Light a Candle – Feed a Child.”
The candles will be available for $15 at the Powdersville facility at 11411 Anderson Road.
Last fall, several Bridgewater Candle employees, alongside some of their dealers, traveled to an orphanage in Haiti and experienced firsthand this poverty-stricken area. They learned that 15 percent of the children in Haiti are orphaned, with some 300,000 being enslaved and abused. It is the hope of Bridgewater to share “sweet grace” to all of these children in whatever circumstance they find themselves in, therein, the name for their special-edition candle “Sweet Grace.”
More than 2 million meals have been provided by Bridgewater to orphaned children in India, Haiti and Nicaragua through the “Light a Candle – Feed a Child” program since its inception in June 2010.
Powdersville Self Storage is a locally owned and operated storage facility serving Easley, Greenville and Powdersville. The facility was voted Best of The Upstate by readers of the Greenville News for five years in a row.
