WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
We hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend! This week we wanted to focus on how people can get involved. You can read below about how you can #StockTheBox with the Blessing Box located at the CCDP Office. Additionally, our office is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 11 AM to 3 PM and on Saturdays from 10 AM to 4 PM. You can volunteer through the top button.
Additionally, we are having our second Voter Registration Drive next Saturday, July 17th, in two highly-Democratic, low-voter-turn-out North Charleston precincts. We will ask voters what issues are important to them and will tell them about the Democrats and the North Area Democratic club. You can sign up through the bottom button.
BLESSING BOX UPDATE
Please consider donating to our CCDP Blessing Box. You can #StockTheBox at any time, or drop off items to the office during office hours or by appointment. Our community members appreciate and depend on our kindness!
A few things to remember when donating food items:
- Please DO donate non-perishable items that will hold up in the heat
- Please DO donate small personal care items that will fit in the blessing box
- Please DO NOT donate any open or expired food items.
Thanks again for your generosity!

Message from the Chair
“Do what is easy and your life will be hard. Do what is hard and your life will become easy.”
— Les Brown
It’s easy to just sit and do nothing about the issues that we’re experiencing in South Carolina. But we’re Democrats and we will do what is hard to make certain that we defend the welfare and interest of everyone in our state.
We need your time, treasure and talent. We need you donating and knocking on doors. With your help, we will turn this state blue. You can use the button below to donate and help support CCDP and elect Democrats!
Chair of Charleston County Democratic Party
All meetings until further notice will be conducted “virtually” using Zoom. You can connect by computer or telephone. We will continue to use MobilizeAmerica to RSVP.
