Boeing South Carolina’s Employees Community Fund awarded the Charleston Area Senior Citizens’ Services Inc. $4,983 for the “Adopt a Day of Meals on Wheels of Charleston” in 2018.

Since 1967, Meals on Wheels of Charleston has been delivering hot meals to homebound seniors in the Lowcountry. Recipients range in age from 60 to 104 with an average age of 78. Fifteen delivery technicians and numerous volunteers travel 23 routes to deliver 600 meals each weekday.

The S.C. Disability Employment Coalition will host a free employment workshop in Moncks Corner for individuals with disabilities from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Feb. 26. The workshop will explore myths of how work affects disability benefits and will connect attendees with community organizations.

It will be held at Trident Technical College’s Berkeley Campus at 1001 S. Live Oak Drive in Moncks Corner. Participants can register online, by email or at 800-681-6805.

The workshop is part of the coalition’s Hire Me S.C. campaign, a multiyear, statewide workforce development effort to change the culture of disability employment.

Lowes Foods will host a job fair from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday at the Station 41 Shopping Center, 1039 S.C. Highway 41 in Mount Pleasant, directly above Tidal Grounds Coffee.

The grocery store is seeking employees for guest services, produce, meat, seafood, deli, bakery and other areas for a new store set to open this spring. Those interested should complete an online application and bring a resume.

A Charleston family will be a part of a five-day trip to Walt Disney World through Bert’s Big Adventure, a nonprofit that plans and pays for the trip for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. Twelve families in total will be part of this year’s trip.

Heritage Trust Federal Credit Union has launched several initiatives to ease the burden on federal employees during the government shutdown. The credit union organized an internal collection for food, hygiene products and other essential items that were donated to the U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers Association to benefit local Coast Guard families stationed at Sector Charleston.

The credit union also coordinated with Charleston International Airport to provide meals for Transportation Security Administration employees and air traffic controllers who worked without pay.
