Terrific Tuesdays supporting the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA):
The Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA) is a local nonprofit who provides prevention and intervention programs targeted to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect. Members placed on this project take turns volunteering on Tuesday evenings in the CAPA shelter and spend quality time with children who have been removed from their homes because of sexual, physical abuse and/or neglect. They engage in activities that promote character development, fun games that provide a much needed distraction and creative arts and crafts projects.
Supporting Hopeful Horizons:
Hopeful Horizons provides professional supportive services to victims of intimate partner abuse and their children in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties in South Carolina. Committed to the belief that safety from violence and freedom from fear are universal rights, Hopeful Horizons conducts community education programs to confront the societal norms that condone abusive behavior.
Raising Blood Donations for the Lowcountry:
JSLB will hosts an annual blood drive to raise awareness and blood donations throughout the community. One donation can save up to three lives and One Blood supplies all of the blood for our local area. JSLB members will be responsible for coordinate the event, recruit donors and offer encouragement as people donate.
