WPA Workers Cut Wood for Needy Families | History of SC Slide Collection

In Columbia, WPA workers cut wood for distribution to the needy by the Salvation Army. The project flourished under the WPA and its city of Columbia and Salvation Army sponsorship from 1935 to 1942. It has since been taken over by "The State" newspaper, which still raises funds to help supply fuel during the winter for those who need it but cannot pay for it.
