USC Salkehatchie students worked with hundreds of community volunteers and Governor Nikki Haley to provide health screenings to the residents of the Allendale community at the All Together Allendale Health Fair.
Nursing students assisted with the health screenings and 10 additional students coordinated field day games for the children of those who came to the health fair. Salkehatchie also sponsored an exhibit of educational programs available at its campuses.
The event, held at Allendale Elementary School, provided medical screenings and exhibits on adult/child literacy, exercise and Department of Health and Human Services eligibility.
The event coincided with the 4th annual Allendale Work Day that is coordinated through the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship which brought 300 to 400 volunteers to Allendale for the day to work on community projects as well as assisting needy individuals with household repairs.
Governor Haley sponsored the All Together Allendale Health Fair through her Original Six Foundation. She also provided lumber for repairs, brought doctors and dentists to the event and arranged for lunch to be donated for all volunteers.
