Out of the Office - Random Act of Kindness

The following email was recently received at the State Office. It has been edited for clarity.


The weather on Saturday afternoon was somewhat warm, at least for February. The skies were clear and the sun was shining very bright. I decided to stop at Finlay Park for a few minutes before my next appointment.

As I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed a large gathering of the homeless population carrying white containers of food. Some were huddled around a SUV with the trunk open. I noticed two young women who had more Styrofoam containers of food in the trunk. I thought to myself, “How nice of them to take time to feed the homeless.”

I pulled my car over to see if I could assist them. As I talked with them I noticed another young woman walking around the park handing out food containers to the homeless. I asked her name, and to my surprise they said, “Shameria Glover.” Shameria definitely put her convictions into action. She simply woke up and decided to prepare about 70 meals for the often overlooked, hurting, hungry citizens of Columbia, SC.

Job well done Shameria!
