Clarendon County, SC

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2020

Project Category: Access to health care services

Description: To provide free primary care services in rural South Carolina, the Town of Summerton set out to a mobile health clinic. The town received two donated shipping containers. They worked to retrofit one to become the new mobile clinic and the other to store medical equipment. A generator provides power to the mobile unit, allowing the Town to deploy it in remote areas. After completing construction, the Town plans to donate the clinic to a local health care provider. Project organizers hope this helps uninsured and low-income community members access medical care.

Richland County, SC

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2021

Project Category: Inclusive civic engagement efforts

Description: To help facilitate community conversations around race, bias, inclusivity and equality, the Richland Library created a curriculum for community groups, nonprofits and businesses. To launch the Let's Talk Race program, library staff brought in a consultant to develop training materials, as well as videos and web content. All materials are available to the community for free. Additionally, organizers wanted to enable other communities to replicate the work, so they built an open-source digital toolkit. Organizers hope the curriculum creates a safe space for important -- but often difficult -- community discussions.
