Kiawah Island Digest December 2017 - Page 7

7 December 2017 Help Inspire Change on the Sea Islands With Kiawah Cares In 2017, your contributions to Kiawah Cares gave students and pre-school children the chance to begin a new cycle of success, breaking away from intergenerational poverty. Other gifts helped make homes safe for residents once again with the help of partner program CHIP Ministry. You continued to connect neighbors with resources through the Kiawah Cares network of partners, lifting quality of life one family at a time. Jamie Cooper, executive director of Kiawah Cares' partner Communities In Schools, writes “One caring adult can change a student’s life. When a community of caring adults, like Kiawah property owners, comes together, the impact echoes far beyond one student. It reaches a whole family, a whole school and a whole community. Thank you to Kiawah Cares and the Kiawah community for not just being one caring adult, but for being many.” On a daily basis, our neighbors on Johns and Wadmalaw islands are faced with rural poverty and isolation from resources. Year after year, you advocate, volunteer and give to improve the lives of these families and individuals who are so often overlooked. You can help inspire even more change on the Sea Islands by making a year-end gift to Kiawah Cares. You did so much in 2017; visit to do even more in 2018!
