On Thursday, December 16th, a few staff members from RetireEASE went and volunteered at The Cooperative Ministry in Columbia. The Cooperative Ministry serves the Midlands community by assisting the working poor through assistance such as counseling, prayers, or providing guidance to availability of community resources. This ministry provides help as well, such as food drives. The RetireEASE staff helped The Cooperative Ministry reorganize their pantry for better accessibility for staff and volunteers. This was a chance for RetireEASE to partner with other community agencies to give back to the Midlands during the holiday season.
