“Sometimes giving a jacket to someone in need is all it takes to change their lives.” -Kim
We are so thankful for each and every single one of you who make the holidays possible at BSH. According to the National Retail Federation, the average family spends approximately $637.13 on gifts, $215.04 on food/decorations and $154.53 on non-gift related purchases–amounting to $1007.42 in total. Struggling families find additional spending nearly impossible during the holidays. No parent wants their children knowing they are facing hard times. Providing aid for these families is so important for parents to get help without sacrificing their dignity.
We depend heavily on the community, especially during the holiday season; we are thankful for the the cash donations, and the toy and food drives you support. With your help, we were able to serve Thanksgiving dinner to more than 350 this year! We plan to distribute more than 14,000 toys to 1,750 children over the next 3 weeks. Thanks to you we make the holiday season less stressful and enjoyable for our Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton families.
We strive to bring long lasting and continual help to the families in our community, not just a temporary fix. It’s an amazing feeling to help families go from crisis to self-sufficiency, and all is possible because of you. Thank you for investing in our community.
