Jackie Waddell of Henley’s Place presents Eva Jones on behalf of the Betty Wilkinson Senior Activity Center a check for $250. Henley’s Place held a fundraiser for the center, donating half of all biscuits & gravy sales to them. "They’re the first business since I’ve been here to do this for us," Jones said. "The money will go toward repair costs on the vans used in the Meals on Wheels program.

"Sometimes all it takes is one group starting to help. Just a few days later, Geno’s Pizza called and offered to provide pizza. They saw pizza on the menu in the Greenwood Democrat and wanted to help."
