Thousands of Easter Baskets handed out by local group

Gary Bingham is making a difference this Easter. Bingham owns Myrtle Beach’s Bargain Warehouse.

The Bargain Warehouse, received huge shipments of Easter candy and Easter gifts to sell to other businesses this year. However, once the coronavirus outbreak began, those businesses no longer needed the supplies. Bingham decided he wanted to do something with the goods to help our area.

Bingham told MyrtleBeachSC News, “What a blessing it is to help this Community and to be able to not only give from my heart but to put a smile on the much deserving families due to this Pandemic. God has truly blessed me and His word says for His people then to go and bless others. To simply see the smiles, tears of joy and families enjoying what we are all doing brings tears to my eyes and sincere love in my heart. To bring joy where today there is so much fear and pain is exactly why we are all doing this. It all started with an idea and a simple desire to do something, today we have been so fortunate to bless over 2000 families with over 4000 baskets full of love. One more day to go! I challenge other business owners to all come together and do something for your community. No matter how small it may seem, you will be truly blessed for having the desire and for simply showing up!

Local area resident John Gallman spent his time with Bingham loading and handing out baskets this week.

Said John Gallman, Candidate for S.C. 33 Senate, “It’s a honor, and privilege to able to serve folks.  I believe the greatest people in life are servants.  Dr. Martin Luther King may have said it best. King said anyone can be great because anyone can serve.  When I Become our state Senator, I will highlight and model this kind of service. I am choosing to give away 100% of my income from that elected position, giving it back to our community” (to our schools, Rec centers, and people in need.)

Bingham’s act of kindness did not end there. Before he went back to work, he even thanked us.

He closed, “Thank you, we are working throughout the night to restock.”

The group will be giving out baskets again tomorrow, April 10th.
