Church group's garden tour seeking grant applicants

info@islandpacket.comOctober 7, 2013 

The 2014 All Saints Episcopal Church Garden Tour is currently seeking applications from local nonprofits that would like to be considered as grant recipients for next year's event. The organization must provide services to the residents of Beaufort County or Jasper County as they struggle with challenges presented either by hunger, homelessness, literacy or aging. Applications will not be accepted from entities that do not exist primarily to provide support in at least one of these functional areas.

All profits from the 27th All Saints Garden Tour, which will be held May 17, will be donated to several local nonprofits that meet the established criteria. The Garden Tour is a major component of the domestic outreach program of All Saints Episcopal Church on Hilton Head Island.

Nonprofits interested in obtaining additional information or a copy of the full criteria plus an application form, should contact Karen Reuter, chairwoman of the board for the 2014 Garden Tour, by calling 843-342-9727 or emailing vandrefalk@live.com.

Each group that is selected to receive a portion of the proceeds from the Garden Tour will be asked to provide volunteers to help with the event, as well as to sell tickets to the event to their respective members and supporters.

All grant application requests must be received at the church office, 3001 Meeting St., Hilton Head Island, no later than Oct. 15.
