Smart Choice Outreach Center Inc. Motto Feeding Minds and Bodies “Ten years from now I hope to have established an educational/recreational teen center in Harnett County. Our teens are crying out for help and the evil forcers are trying to steal, kill and destroy our youth. If I can save one child at a time then I feel as though my mission and goals are not in vain.” – Dorothy Spears McLeod
