AIM hosted its annual Heart for Helping breakfast dedicated to highlighting the giving hearts of the community Thursday February 20, 2020 from 7:30am-9:00am at the Sadler Bereavement and Conference Center in Anderson. The presenting sponsor was Blue Water Carpet Care and a delicious hot breakfast was provided by Raines on Main.

AIM recognized three areas of service in Thursday morning's breakfast, a Volunteer of the Year, Business of the Year, and Church of the Year.
AIM honored Lida Woolery as Volunteer of the year. Lida has been a dedicated volunteer for years, and truly withholds a heart for helping! Volunteer Jennifer Waters created the video above about Ms. Lida that AIM presented on Thursday.
Business of the year was dedicated to
Powdersville Water because of their amazing H20 Program started by Leadership Anderson Class 22. Dyke Spencer accepted the award on behalf of Powdersville Water.
Wilson Calvary Baptist Church and First Presbyterian Church of Anderson were both honored as Church of the year. Mike Dill, Volunteer, Member of AIM's Board, and Member of Wilson Calvary Baptist Church spoke on why he volunteers at AIM.
“We continue to be thankful and blessed for all this community has done for us to help end the cycle of poverty for generations to come,” said Executive Director Kristi King-Brock.
Also on Thursday morning, AIM unveiled its #AIMfor30 Campaign that celebrates the approaching 30th Anniversary of service to Anderson’s under-resourced community. This campaign prompts donors to “Take the AIM Challenge” by donating $30 and urging three others to do the same. Find out more about AIM’s #AIMfor30 Challenge at aimcharity.org/aimfor30.
