Dear PEARLS member,
Your Advisory Board wishes you a very happy and healthy New Year! Exciting plans for 2017 are underway and we hope you will want to participate in this amazing PEARLS year.
Our Annual Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, April 30, 2017. The event is our opportunity to celebrate the important work done by the 2016 grantees and to award grant dollars for 2017. Based on the overwhelming votes in 2016, the grant theme for this year will remain the same...ASSISTING WITH THE NEEDS OF OUR HAMPTON COUNTY CITIZENS. The theme covers a broad range of needs that makes it possible for more 501(c)(3) nonprofits, schools, churches and government agencies to apply. Some viewpoints could be: transportation, education, medical, household cost, health, disabilities, and storm assistance.
Grant instructions and applications will be sent out in a few weeks to organizations, so please let potential grantees know to look for them and encourage them to apply.
If you are interested in serving on the Grants Committee, please call Marsha Robinson at 803-942-0966 or me at The Frock Shop.
