Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Palmetto Dunes POA has launched this initiative to meet the needs of our community through safe individual acts of service. At this time, we have a small group of owners who are able to help with grocery delivery, take-out food dropoff, pharmacy pick-up, etc. specifically to those who cannot get out of the house during this time. We are looking to increase our volunteer base in order to meet the needs of the community.
We encourage you to check on your neighbors, especially the elderly or those who are living alone. While social media is a great resource to connect, many of the people who are at high-risk for serious illness from COVID-19, may not be on Nextdoor or other social media sites.
If you are or know a member who may need assistance or if you would like to volunteer to help, please contact us:
- Help 4 Hope creates a common currency called a community investment card, which donors will fund and trusted community partners (Bluffton Self Help, The Deep Well Project, Campbell Chapel AME Church among others) distribute to those affected by this crisis, empowering them to deploy this capital back into participating restaurants of their choice for a family meal for four. Participating restaurants will then turn over the redeemed cards to the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry and be reimbursed $50 for each card used. Thus helping struggling families across all business sectors and local food-service businesses.
- Donate what you can. Bluffton Self Help, the Deep Well Project and Sandalwood Food Pantry have needs for monetary and goods donations.
- Participate in the Takeout Blitz to help support our local restaurants.
- SERG Restaurant Group is selling Community Strong VIP packages to directly help their employees as well as Bluffton Self Help and Deep Well.
- Donate to the Restaurant Worker Relief fund, which Downtown Catering Company spearheaded with the Lowcountry Strong Foundation to provide dinners and other commissary food items to the restaurant workers who are currently out of work or have lost wages.
- Donate to the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry’s COVID-19 Response Fund, which will rapidly deploy resources to community-based frontline nonprofit organizations addressing the COVID-19 pandemic in Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, and Colleton Counties.
- Hilton Head Community Church is collecting gift cards to donate to the Sandalwood Community Food Pantry. Drop them off at the Community Center between 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
- Check with your local churches; they may have their own outreach.
