Rural Mission was chartered in 1969 to foster, promote and administer to the social, educational and medical housing requirements of the rural people of the sea islands of coastal South Caorlina. Through programs that improve housing and provide food and family services to those who otherwise could not afford them, Rural Mission works to restore the foundation of the community.
“When I look back over our history, it’s hard to believe that we have been in a powerful community relationship of nearly 30 years with the Pearlstine family and its corporation,” said Linda Gadson, executive director of Rural Mission. “The compassion exemplified from the family has truly taught us that living in a world of turmoil, there are still places where love and peace abound, and we are more than appreciateve that the Pearlstine family has lived up to its unwavering commitment by partnering with Harris Teeter to once again provide a great holiday meal to the families we serve.”
