Gazette Thank You Letter for April 11

For grant help

The officers and board of directors of HELP of Beaufort are most grateful that the Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina approved our request for a grant.

With the economy in a spiral, our program would be helpless without assistance in helping with utility bills, rent, and prescriptions; procuring meals for homebound people and helping with day to day problems, where necessary.

We receive no United Way or governmental assistance, with the exception of our Mobile Meals manager who receives a stipend from United Way. We depend on churches, organizations, individual contributions and grants such as this to support our programs. Therefore, the grant of $12,000 will help tremendously in our attempts to alleviate need in our community.

Without donors in the community to assist us, the HELP program would not be as viable as it is today. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
