Current Opportunities to Give during Covid-19
The Missions Ministry decided to send $1,500 to the Agape Family Life Center in Hardeeville to help their food pantry and other programs. Another $1,500 will be sent to the Soup Kitchen at Campbell AME Church in Bluffton. They are distributing 150 meals three times a week from their parking lot and are delivering 89 additional meals. The need is great everywhere!
Missions Ministry also encourages you to give directly to both Bluffton Self Help and Agape as they are on the front lines dealing with hunger. You can give directly to each using the instructions below. In addition, if you prefer to donate food items, you can do so through Amazon.com by sending items directly to them using their physical address supplied below. Suggested food items are beans (dried or canned), canned tomatoes, soups, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, and cereals.

The effects of Covid-19 impact us all, down to the youngest students in Beaufort County. Pre-K through first grade students were sent home without technology devices needed to connect to their teachers and classmates. As time began to pass, the need to employ online learning became apparent but these children were left without a device to connect back to school. Hargray has committed to providing free internet throughout the county for every student, Pre-K through college which makes the KindlesforKids mission all the more possible. No one could have foreseen this, but there is something we can do to help! Thus far, KindlesforKids has filled the need at one elementary school and we now realize the need exists at all 12 elementary schools, county-wide. With the funds raised, we will purchase and distribute an Amazon Fire 7 16GB Kindle to every pre-K through first grade child in need throughout Beaufort County. One device is approximately $55 with tax and shipping but means a connection back to class for a young student in need. Imagine seeing a child reconnect after being out of class for a month and then help us get these kids back in class with KindlesForKids! If you would like to help, please send a check to LPC (10 Simmonsville Rd. Bluffton, SC 29910) and make the notation of Kindles for Kids or CCMAC.
Thank you so much for remembering our neighbors in need!
