We would not have received this award today without the involvement of everyone! What an incredible day it was for our organization and our community!" - Kelly Bettencourt, Board President
"I feel honored we were selected as one of the Angel award recipients.

“South Carolina is one of the most generous states in the nation, and this year’s Angels exemplify how this generosity can transform the lives of others,” said Secretary Hammond. “As we enter the holiday season, I encourage everyone to give back to their communities in any way that they can, whether it be through making a donation or volunteering their services. As always, remember to give from the heart, but please give smart.”
