The Board has chosen two charities:page4image34176

Fostering Hope - The mission of Fostering Hope is to provide basic necessities for children in crisis situations. All the kids they serve have had some form of abuse, whether physical, emotional or mental. Often times children in crisis situations have nothing more than the clothes they are wearing. These children may be in the process of starting over in a brand new environment. The Children’s Resource Center is stocked with clothes, personal hygiene items, school supplies, toys and books to help aid these children during this difficult transition. Fostering Hope relies completely on local contributions, to keep their facility open and operating.

Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach - The Kitchen’s mission is to feed the hungry of the Grand Strand. For the past 25 years, they have served the working poor, senior citizens, veterans, children, the transients and the homeless.

If anyone has any questions about our charities, or if you would like information on volunteering to help any of these choices, please contact Denise Snight at 843-236-4923.
