We’re excited to announce the June winners of our Give Back Grant – Charleston Hope and Purple Heart Homes. The Give Back Grant program, initiated in 2016, demonstrates “LimRic Pride” by donating a financial contribution to two 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations every month. In 2018, we expanded the program by adding a volunteer element in addition to monthly donations.
Charleston Hope is dedicated to empowering students and teachers in title 1 schools through relationships, resources and opportunities. Built on three core values – collaborate, create and connect – Charleston Hope offers classroom mentorship for all students and also development and leadership programs for young women. Volunteers can take action by serving as a mentor, adopting a classroom or becoming a monthly donor.
While not a traditional check recipient, our other June Give Back Grant beneficiary is Purple Heart Homes, which was founded in 2008 by two combat-wounded Veterans who were injured in Iraq. From building ramps to providing home ownership opportunities to younger Veterans, Purple Heart Homes’ mission is to provide functional and quality housing for disabled Veterans. We will be working with one of its partners to provide air conditioning equipment, installment and service to a local veteran’s home. More information about this project will be forthcoming.

Every month, LimRic Plumbing, Heating & Air gives $500 to a local non-profit organization through their LimRic Give Back Grant campaign. This month, the company presented a $500 check to Lowcountry Furniture Bank and Destiny Community Café.
The Lowcountry Furniture Bank is a wonderful organization that improves the lives of residents of Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester Counties by partnering with the Tri-County communities for distribution of essential home furnishings to displaced or homeless individuals who secure housing. Destiny Community Café is the only One World Everybody Eats Foundation Pay-What-You-Can Cafe in South Carolina. Its patrons set the price for their mostly local and organic soul food cuisine. It’s a great cause!

Our Give Back Grant recipients for December are Camp Rise Above and Postpartum Support Charleston. The Give Back Grant is a monthly donation of $500 to local nonprofit organizations.
The LimRic Give Back Grant was initiated in February 2016 and demonstrates “LimRic Pride” by donating $500 to two 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations every month. David Miles, owner of LimRic Plumbing, Heating & Air, said, “LimRic Pride is the backbone of our company and it emphasizes the community spirit. We are humbled to give to charities that offer support for people in different walks of life, since it’s the people that make up our community.”
The winners of the grant are chosen from Facebook nominations and voting. Individuals are invited to nominate their favorite charity on our Facebook page. Then each month, several charities are selected to take part in a two-week long voting process on the our Facebook page. The two charities with the most votes at the end of the voting period receive a $500 check from us.
Camp Rise Above, founded by Barbara Van Thullenar Denton in 2008, is a unique non-profit organization that provides fun, life changing camp experiences to children with serious illnesses, life challenges, and disabilities. They have grown to serve more than 58,000 children in South Carolina, offering high quality camp programs to hundreds of children each year.
“We believe all children deserve to experience the magic of childhood, regardless of their medical status,” said Executive Director, Erin Marie Ulmer. “That’s why we are so grateful to LimRic for their generous donation which will provide life-changing moments for Lowcountry children in need.”
Postpartum Support Charleston was founded by Helena Bradford after the loss of her daughter to postpartum depression. The organization is dedicated to eradicating the stigma surrounding maternal mental illnesses (such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and psychosis during and after pregnancy) to ensure all women who suffer receive support. In addition, Postpartum Support Charleston hosts a peer-led support group for women and their families.
“We don’t want anyone else to experience loss caused by postpartum depression,” said Elaine DeaKyne, Executive Director of Postpartum Support Charleston. “It’s through charitable giving, like LimRic’s Gives Back Grant, that we are able to provide hope and help and to bring awareness to postpartum depression and anxiety.”
