CAMDEN, S.C. — It's Senior Service Day for non-profit Caring for Aging Beauties. That means spending the day honoring and helping those over 65 years old.
"It started back in 2016," says Caring For Aging Beauties Founder Kesha L Hayes.
Hayes says over 150 volunteers spend their day going to different communities across South Carolina.
"Our actual celebration will take place on September 24th," Hayes said. "We will go everywhere, someone's house, the different entities, anywhere there's a senior, that's where we will be."
Loretta Drakeford and Mary Brevard are both seniors in the Kershaw County community who have been impacted by their service.
"Somebody cares and what we're going through and the love is being spread, which is very, very important for those of us who can't do everything ourselves," Drakeford said.
"That's love ya know? I look forward to them every year," Brevard added.
It's a yearly event that Hayes says makes her happy.
"When people hear beauty, they think it's a gender situation, but it's actually their wisdom, so an aging beauty is a person with exemplary wisdom who should be celebrated and valued, so I love this day because we're honoring those who have left legacies for us," Hayes said.
Due to it being a weekday, they will be celebrating Senior Service Day on September 24. For more information on how to get involved, click here.
