Sadler-Hughes Donates to Thornwell

Clinton Apothecary's Annual Contest Raises Funds and Awareness for Local Charities

Sadler-Hughes Apothecary donated a percentage of profits to Thornwell during its fourth annual contest to support local charities. All told, the Clinton pharmacy donated $1083.65 to Thornwell.

“There are many needs here in Laurens County,” said Walter Hughes, owner of Sadler-Hughes Apothecary. “We enjoy supporting the organizations that work to meet these needs while also bringing awareness to these great organizations.”

Sadler-Hughes Apothecary holds the contest during the month of December. Customers choose an organization from a form located inside the pharmacy. The winner is selected by a random drawing on the final day of the contest.

All of the organizations are from Laurens County and include those supported by Sadler-Hughes Apothecary, the United Way of Laurens County, or the Rotary Club. The organizations that participated in this year’s contest include:

  • AMIkids
  • Clinton Coalition for Youth
  • Clinton YMCA
  • Community Grand
  • Hospice of Laurens County
  • Open Door Center
  • Palmetto Equestrian Therapeutic Riding Program
  • Thornwell
  • United Ministries
  • United Way of Laurens County

Thornwell isn’t eligible to participate in the contest for three years since winning the contest this year.

“The contest isn’t a popular vote,” Hughes said. “The purpose is to support and bring awareness to organizations in the community while encouraging those in the community to shop local.”
