HELP BY GIVING

Every person whose life is improved or saved, stems from an act of generosity that’s purely voluntary. That’s why donating is so extraordinary when you do it. Giving back to your community, is also an act of generosity.

Did you know the marble used to carve the Lincoln Memorial came from Pickens County?

The Statue lies at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. It lies between the north and south chambers is the central hall containing the solitary statue of Lincoln sitting in contemplation. The statue was carved by the Piccirilli brothers under the supervision of the sculptor, Daniel Chester French, and took four years to complete. 

The inscription above the statue reads ‘In this temple as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved the Union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln is enshrined forever.’

Built between 1914-1922
