President’s Pick

Freedom Readers - The organization’s mission is to improve reading skills in low-income communities by providing one- to-one literacy tutoring, free books for home libraries, and an inspiring, high-energy learning environment. They promote a love of reading and development of the skills, tools, habits, and characteristics needed to become good readers.

The Board has chosen two charities:page4image34176

Help 4 Kids (Backpack Buddies) - The organization’s mission is to ensure that children in our community stay healthy and not hungry. Every Friday at school, teachers discreetly include a food sack in the kids’ backpacks so they have something to eat over the weekend. They are currently serving over 3,000 local children who would otherwise go hungry. Additionally, they provide clothing and school supplies to students in need.

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. 

Purple Bucket

Purple Bucket

As our new year begins, we have decided to renew the Purple Bucket Collection. Each month, at our Coffee and again at our Luncheon, we will pass a purple bucket around for your voluntary contributions to the registered charitable organization selected by the Board.

For the month of March, we have selected "The Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association": CVMA is a grassroots organization in Murrells Inlet that assists local combat veterans in a variety of ways. They transport homeless veterans to shelters and food banks and take sick veterans to doctor appointments. They also provide job counseling and guidance for these veterans to access state and local programs. 

Note:  The Purple Bucket Collection is strictly voluntary. Your support is deeply appreciated.
