The 15th Annual Neighbor Day was a success in spite of the restrictions of COVID-19. Generous donations, established sponsorships, and dedicated employees at the Charleston office of South Carolina Legal Services were determined to make this another successful year. Due to COVID-19, a more creative and strategic approach was needed for this year’s community outreach project. Parents who previously attended Neighbor Day were contacted via phone, email and mail. They were given instructions on how to sign up and later schedule an appointment to pick up the items. We were able to provide over 160 children including the children housed at the Carolina Youth Development Center with shoes, socks, school supplies, dental hygiene kits, and PPE supplies. We also made a sizable shoe donation to The Lowcountry Orphan Relief.
COVID-19 didn’t stop our efforts of providing resources and much needed items for the people of our community. We will continue to be a resource for our community and look forward to a COVID-19 Free Neighbor Day 2021.
