WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) released the next installment of his virtual county tour across South Carolina featuring a stop in Clarendon County. This stop included participants from the Holy Donut Shoppe, which uses its proceeds to support a domestic violence shelter; as well as representatives of Provalus— an IT services company who has partnered with Holy Donut Shoppe. Senator Scott’s state-wide county tour highlights community organizations, local businesses and everyday South Carolinians to show what makes each county unique.
“The partnership between the Holy Donut Shoppe and Provalus show the power of small businesses to change our neighborhoods for the better,” said Senator Scott. “When businesses invest in the people, economic growth and life change happen. This sort of investment is the way forward for South Carolina.”
