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!
Nonperishables are excellent, and if you want to go a step further, household and sanitary items not covered by SNAP/WIC are needed that much more right now, consider dropping off some of the following too:
Household Cleaning Supplies (Sponges, Dish Soap, Dishwasher Detergent, Bathroom cleaner, Paper Towels, Dish Towels, Laundry Detergent, etc.) Sanitary (Hand Soap, Toilet Paper, Shampoo, Conditioner, Bars of Soap, Hair Ties, Feminine Products) and Bandanas (for masks)
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?
