The Board of the Hampton Hall Charitable Fund granted funds to Second Helpings for fuel to keep our trucks rolling. Second Helpings’ nine refrigerated trucks supply 80 percent or more of the food distributed to people facing food insecurity in three counties. The food is picked up from food donors and distributed FREE OF ANY FEES! Second Helpings is the only local nonprofit organization rescuing food in the lowcountry. Support your local agencies that help your neighbors. Thank you Hampton Hall!
Special THANK YOU to Palmetto Bluff, recipient of the Founder Award for Financial Support 2017. Palmetto Bluff is a special supporter of many nonprofits in the lowcountry, including Second Helpings. Second Helpings has received over $100,000 in financial support from Palmetto Bluff. Pictured here is Courtney Hampson, marketing manager at Palmetto Bluff with Jan Malinowski, president of Second Helpings LC. This picture was taken at SHARE THE BOUNTY, held Thursday, September 21. Thank you Courtney and PALMETTO BLUFF.
What We Do So All Can Eat
Every day hundreds of local volunteers work tirelessly to provide support to many local people facing food insecurity. From the small churches across Beaufort, Hampton and Jasper counties to the food pantries strung out in the low country, food is distributed daily to the outstretched hand by dedicated volunteers.
“Poverty in the low country and in South Carolina is one of the highest in the country,” said Jan Malinowski, president of Second Helpings. “We live in a very wealthy area of the country matched by some of the poorest.”
To focus attention on our agencies and the Second Helpings volunteers, a special campaign will feature them during the month of September. The theme is paper plates.
Enjoy these visual representations of the hard work done year round to fight hunger. Remember each of us can do our part to help people who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
A special thank you to those who participated in this campaign. Check out Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as well. Our participating agencies lent their voice and faces to observe September Hunger Awareness Month.
