4 mins read

We would like to thank our new 1st Vice Chair, Sagid Elhillali, for creating this beautiful blessing box using a retired newspaper machine that was donated by our friends at the North Charleston Community Resource Center. The Lowcountry Blessing Box Project features a network of boxes around our area where people can donate food and household essentials simply by placing them in the box. People in need of these items can simply take what they need from the box.

Please help us keep this box stocked for our neighbors. Our office is located at 1379 Ashley River Road.


At our “telephone town hall” convention last week, we unanimously elected a new slate of officers for 2020 and approved our delegates to this year’s state convention.

1st Vice Chair: Sagid Elhillali
2nd Vice Chair: Nina Cano Richards

Help Us Stock Our Blessing Box

Please visit our office at at 1379 Ashley River Road and help us provide for our neighbors in need by dropping off household supplies and non-perishable food items. Blessing Boxes are especially important right now with so many people out of work and we are proud to be part of this vital resource network for our community. If you’re not close by our office, you can use the Lowcounty Blessing Box map to find a box near you that could use some help, too!

Let’s Send Lindsey Graham Home!
In case you missed it, Jaime Harrison just outraised Lindsey Graham by nearly $2 million last quarter and set a new fundraising record in the process. Polling has shown him within the margin of error in his race to unseat Lindsey, but he can only win if Charleston County can deliver the votes he needs. Can you help us get out the vote in the fastest growing blue county in South Carolina?
