-- Whitten Center Parents' Club
The Whitten Center Parents' Club (WCPC) was established in 1953 and is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity . This supportive and active group of parents, relatives and volunteers works very hard to ensure that the excellent quality care provided by the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs is maintained. Through WCPC's efforts, we help to monitor programs, protect human rights and raise money to provide many extras that enhance the lives of the residents who live and work at Whitten Center.
Whitten Center was founded by B. O. Whitten, M.D. in 1920. It is a state run, residential treatment facility for approximately 240 people with developmental disabilities and special needs. A full compliment of continuous services are provided. Among these services are:
* Comprehensive Medical Care * Communication Services
* Visually Impaired Services * Program Services
* Education Services * Pastoral Services
* Habilitation Services * Leisure Services
* Vocational Services * Volunteer Services
* Assistive Technology

Thank you to all the bikers that came out on this cold rainy Sunday to support the Bub Lollis Bike Run for the Whitten Center Residents! About 55 bikers put smiles on the resident's faces and brought all kinds of donations to make their lives a little more special! Bless you for braving the elements for a great cause!
The parents, advocates, PC Pharmacy Students and Whitten Staff staff all were a big help in serving food , drinks, cooking and accepting donations from the riders. Great job to Tara Glenn our new Volunteer Service director and Marlene Woods our advocate consultant for assisting with the details. All our WC staff helping are amazing!
I think the rain drops are tears of approval from God for doing His service on Earth!
Love you bikers, staff and friends!
