Volunteers ensure children in Barnwell County have ‘A Place to Dream’


BARNWELL, S.C. (WJBF) — Thirty-six children in Barnwell County are waking up in beds of their own thanks to volunteers and the Barnwell County Family YMCA.

It’s a part of the “A Place to Dream” program.

Crews started their Saturday morning making rounds to homes in Barnwell and Williston.

The program provides beds to children in need who may sleep on tile floors, share an old mattress with three or four siblings, or even sleep on a couch.

The program began in November 2018 and we’re told it has grown ever since.
