Earlier this month, “The Peanut Gang”, a group of South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) employees and retirees celebrated 25 years at Camp Happy Days’ annual summer camp in Summerton, South Carolina by serving over 275 children their signature peanuts.
From July 2 – July 8, South Carolina children battling cancer and their siblings attended Camp Happy Days’ summer camp at Camp Bob Cooper. The entire week was filled with new and exciting adventures that allowed campers to escape the trials of battling cancer for a week and simply be a kid.
On Wednesday, July 5, campers and counselors got a special visit from SCE&G’s very own “The Peanut Gang.” The group served five bushels of boiled peanuts and cold soft drinks to more than 275 children.
“Camp wouldn’t be the same without a visit from The Peanut Gang,” explains Cindy Johnson, Director of Camp Happy Days. “They add something a little extra special for the kids during the week, and we couldn’t be more grateful for their continued support.” The group has also raised over $31,000 for Camp Happy Days this year.
The group of SCE&G employees and retirees first brought their peanuts to Camp Happy Days’ summer camp in 1994. “Seeing how much good camp does for these kids and the smiles on their faces is what keeps us coming back,” explains Bill Ellis, member of The Peanut Gang. “They have an absolute blast, and it makes us all feel good to be able to do something for these kids and Camp Happy Days.”
