Non-Profit Helping Tri-County Children Needs Your Help
CHARLESTON, SC (ERICA SCRIPA, WTAT-TV) — A Lowcountry nonprofit is always giving back by helping thousands of abused and neglected children in the tri-country area. But now they need your help.
Volunteers at Lowcountry Orphan Relief say donations poured in over the holiday season, but now some of those shelves need to be restocked.
A row of containers are labeled with products like toothpaste, soap and shampoo, but many of them still need to be filled and can empty out rather quickly.
“We’ll go through these, I mean, within the next couple of week or so,” said Christina Lope, who is in charge of children’s events and volunteers at Lowcountry Orphan Relief. “We can get upwards of 30, 40 orders a day and we never know the age, the sizes that are coming through the door.”
Toiletries, school uniforms and shoes are just some of their top needs right now.
“Shoes we run low on a lot, just because they are usually asked for in the child’s orders. So it is really important that we have shoes for kids,” she said. “We can get 5, 10, 15 referrals a day just for uniforms, so this whole bunch can go just like that.”
Lowcountry Orphan Relief makes it easy to know what they need. They have set up both an Amazon and Target wish list for many items.
They also need more diverse hair products and always need clothing for boys and girls sized 8 through 14 and 16.
The local nonprofit has helped more than 300 children in the tri-county area so far this year. They are always in need of volunteers and monetary donations.
