President’s Pick

Help for Kids/Backpack Buddies:

Mission: Help for Kids provides food for hungry children of Horry County who through no fault of their own do not have enough to eat on a daily basis. Backpack Buddies provides food on the weekends. Teachers and school administrators identify the children in need. They also provide backpacks filled with school supplies when school starts, and a week’s worth of clothing and a pair of shoes as needed. They are now making and delivering almost 3,000 food packs per week!

The Board chosen charity:

Meals on Wheels of Horry & Georgetown Counties, Inc.:

Mission: To provide nutritious home delivered meals, as well as compassion, hope, assistance, fellowship, and the love of Jesus to those who are or have family that is classified homebound, elderly, and terminally ill in Horry and Georgetown Counties. Their vision is to “Deliver God’s Love One Meal at a Time” in order to transform the lives of those we serve by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, focusing on the whole being, upholding the sanctity of life, and dealing with their current nutritional needs.

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.

Kind Keepers, Inc.

Mission: To save the lives of homeless pets, promote kindness to animals, and advance the highest standards in animal welfare. Their goal is to create an environment in which all rescued animals are given or found a permanent loving home, safe from abuse, neglect, abandonment, and the threat of euthanasia.

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