Funds donated help our neighbors with rent, utilities, and other approved needs. Without the wonderful support of our community many families in need would be left without electricity, water, and would face eviction without our assistance.
For information on how you or your Church or organization can help or donate, stop in or write us. Checks should be ONLY mailed to our mailing address: PO Box 2886, Myrtle Beach, 29578.
