Healing Heroes fund works with low costs

info@islandpacket.comDecember 11, 2013 

I read with interest the Dec. 8 letter about charitable organizations and their administrative costs, which reduce the amount of money that goes to their missions.

Our new organization, Healing Heroes of the Lowcountry Fund, was formed this year following the departure of the Lt. Dan Weekend in Beaufort. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid employees. We fall under the efficient and beneficent umbrella of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, which administers gifts and donations at a tiny fraction of our revenue.

Our mission is to honor, empower and support our wounded heroes, first responders and their families and caregivers by providing state-of-the-art equipment, mental health support and other aid during hospitalization and recovery.

We take pride in serving those who have sacrificed so much. Please check us out at www.hhlcf.org or www.cf-lowcountry.org.
