The holiday season is looking quite different than normal this year. However, it’s not stopping the town of Mount Pleasant from spreading joy in their community.
A Mount Pleasant-based task force has been created to spread Christmas cheer. The task force, Operation COVID Christmas, is being led by Mayor Will Haynie and is composed of a variety of non-profit organizations.
Throughout the month of December, Operation COVID Christmas will be hosting events to give back to the community, especially those most affected by the pandemic.
Some of the events taking place this year include a blood drive, Christmas caroling, and food deliveries to healthcare workers.
In a statement on the creation of the task force, Mayor Will Haynie said, “We focused on three groups in our community who have really felt the effects of the pandemic: Healthcare workers, the Isolated/Elderly, and Hospitality Workers. What began as a conversation has become an expansive operation far exceeding our original vision.”
