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.
