During this holiday season, there are so many ways we can help those around us. Whether we can donate time or financially, we can help. Some of the causes that need aid are below.
I Heart Hungry Kids
Founded in 2013 by Jackson Silverman (then age seven), I Heart Hungry Kids has empowered thousands of kids to fight childhood hunger, get involved, and give back to their community. There are lots of opportunities to volunteer including running a food drive and sponsoring an event.
Lowcountry Orphan Relief
The mission of Lowcountry Orphan Relief is to provide support services and aid to meet the needs of Lowcountry children identified as at-risk or suffering from abandonment, abuse and/or neglect. The main way to volunteer is at their Distribution Center where donations are sorted, stored, packed, and distributed for the children served. There are also other ways to donate and get involved.
Peninsula Democrats, please be on the lookout for an email from Denise Helton on Thursday, December 1 with some important information as we move forward as a group. A request for additional leadership within the club, potential in-person places for upcoming meetings, and a few miscellaneous items will be included. Thank you all for your support!
Congratulations, Deon Tedder!

A few things to remember when donating Blessing Box items:

- DO donate small personal care items that will fit in the blessing box
- example toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant,
- DO NOT donate any open or expired items.
Lowcountry Period Project Supplies Needed!
Did you know that our volunteers build period packs in support of the Homeless Period Project? The project provides pre-made kits for homeless shelters and nurse’s offices at Title IX schools in the Lowcountry. These items are a luxury to homeless women and girls and many are forced to choose between hygiene and food. Please consider donating the following items so we can continue to support this amazing project!
-individually-wrapped feminine pads
-individually-wrapped panty liners
Thanks again for your generosity!
Email email@example.com to arrange a drop off time.
