May 5 is Lowcountry Giving Day and your donation of $50 means a lot to people living on minimum wages. What can $50 provide, you ask….
- $50 can help a client catch up on their bills. If it is not the full amount, it still counts. They can avoid racking up anymore late fees, can’t they?$50 buys socks and underwear for a family, providing hygiene and cleanliness!
- $50 can gas up a car, truck or van to find a job or keep a job.
- With $50 a client can go grocery shopping for those items they can’t get in the food pantry especially milk, dairy and cheese products.
- $50 pays for an oil change to keep a car running efficiently.
- And $50 buys much needed toiletries and grooming products!
