"Scents for Soldiers" Comes to Wilmington


One particular vendor on Front Street was on a special movement to help our troops.

Its called “Scents for Soldiers”, a group based in Myrtle Beach that provides help to soldiers undergoing treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center.

They raise funds by taking donations and selling goods at festivals such as the Azalea Festival. With that money, they visit wounded soldiers and try to buy them things they need.

“We go room to room, we take requests, we get their wish list or their want list,” says MaryAnne Daugherty. “With donations we go out and purchase the things that they have asked for or if they're able we take them shopping.”

MaryAnne Daugherty is trying to start a Wilmington chapter for scents for soldiers, but needs more members and community support. If you'd like to help you can visit their website:, or you can contact MaryAnne Daugherty at (910) 620-7054 or
