Packet Thank You Letters for Aug. 29

August 29, 2011 

To The Bargain Box

The Island Recreation Association would like to thank The Bargain Box for its generous support of our Challenge Camp Summer Program 2011.

The children had lots of fun with different experiences each week. Again, we know in our community The Bargain Box has many choices when it comes to charitable giving. Its support of the Island Recreation Association is greatly appreciated. Rest assured, we will continue to earn that support by serving our community with opportunities for a healthier, happier life for everyone.

From Hospice Care

On behalf of Hospice Care of the Lowcountry, I would like to thank the Hargray Caring Coins Foundation for recognizing our agency with a very generous contribution.

While at the awards reception, I found myself looking around at the various representatives of the distinguished charitable organizations we have in this community. I was so proud and honored to be a part of this amazing assembly. We in the Lowcountry are very fortunate to live where so many are devoted to their missions and committed to the welfare of this fine community.

I thank you again, Caring Coins, for allowing Hospice Care of the Lowcountry to continue its mission of serving our friends and neighbors who are faced with terminal illnesses and end of life challenges.

From Self Help

The volunteers, staff and board of directors of Bluffton Self Help extend grateful appreciation to the Hargray Caring Coins Foundation for the 2011 emergency funding grant. It was indeed an honor to be a recipient.

Caring Coins Foundation was established by Hargray in 2003, and provides support to nonprofit organizations in Beaufort, Bluffton, Hardeeville and on Hilton Head Island. Hargray customers voluntarily round up their monthly bill and the spare "change" collected is disbursed quarterly by an independent board of directors and the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry.

As a grant recipient, Bluffton Self Help will use these funds to further its mission. Last year, Bluffton Self Help assisted more than 22,000 people with free donated food, clothing and financial assistance for those in a crisis situation.

Thank you Hargray customers for helping us help our neighbors.

Lili Coleman, executive director

Bluffton Self Help


From youth theater

The board of directors of Main Street Youth Theatre along with the staff and volunteer actors would like to thank the Hargray Caring Coins Foundation for its continued generous support of the theater.

As a recent recipient of a Caring Coins Foundation grant, the Main Street Youth Theatre continues to be able to fulfill our mission of exposing youth to a true theatrical experience, and whether on stage or in the audience, to enlighten and educate them through the power of live performance. The funds from this grant will help offset the show expenses, including royalty fees, stage design and costumes of our fall performance of "Into the Woods."

The dedication and commitment of all the Caring Coin Foundation volunteers, as well as the donations from the people of our community, make the success of our efforts possible. It is because of you that we are able to enrich the lives of all the children who participate in and attend the theater. Bravo for all you do.
