Nonprofit that provides Christmas gifts to students kicks off annual outreach project
A nonprofit organization started last year by two College of Charleston students is kicking off its second annual adopt-a-classroom Christmas outreach project.
Charleston Hope gives a wrapped Christmas gift, hot meal and volunteer time to 1,425 students at three high-poverty schools. The group will serve three schools this year: Charleston Progressive, Burns Elementary, and Sanders-Clyde.
Individuals who drop off unwrapped gifts at TCBY locations in Charleston will receive a coupon for buy one, get one free.
Anyone can opt to provide gifts for an entire classroom, or to donate $150 to cover the cost of a wrapped gift and hot meal for the class.
Financial donations can be mailed to: Emily Hoisington, 285 CofC Complex, Charleston, S.C. 29424.
