HELP of Beaufort thankful for Coastal Community Foundation grant

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

With the economy in a spiral, our program would be helpless without assistance to aid 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 to support our programs.

Therefore, this grant of $12,000 will help tremendously in our attempt to alleviate need in our community.

Steve Curless
