The Edgecombe Community College Human Services Club recently donated $400 to the Edgecombe Country Department of Social Services to help support foster children.

Student Paulette Clark Daniels and club advisor Renee Pearson, who chairs the Human Services Technology program, presented the check to Yvonne Winston,DSS foster care supervisor. The donation was generated from the Christmas Ticket Raffle that the Human Services Club held to support foster children at Christmas.

Winston said 62 children are currently in Department of Social Servies custody in Edgecombe County. With shrinking budgets, Christmas gift-buying presents challenges for social workers, she added.
