Hunter Vaughn, South Carolina Teen Queen, has been busy volunteering around town. Hunter used a portion of her winnings to purchase food to donate to the food pantry of HOPE in Lancaster. HOPE- Helping Other People Effectively, provides help to residents of Lancaster and Fort Lawn, South Carolina, who are coping with short term financial emergencies. HOPE offers assistance with rent, heating fuel, electricity, natural gas, water and food.
Hunter also donated the school supplies she received at the state pageant to Erwin Elementary School in Lancaster. The majority of Erwin’s student body are children from low socioeconomic backgrounds. The supplies donated were greatly appreciated and will be distributed to students as needed throughout the school year.
