Hundreds of volunteers work to complete 35 projects in the Charleston area in 48 hours
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) – The Northwoods Baptist Church in North Charleston and the organization Send Relief have reached out to area governments, schools and nonprofits to see what they need and how they can help. .
Hundreds of volunteers from the Charleston community and churches will complete more than 30 projects around the city in just two days.
Send Relief is known for being first responders to natural disasters, fighting human trafficking, and even sending aid to people affected by war in Ukraine. The group seeks to provide hands-on service to those in need right here in Charleston today and tomorrow as part of their Send Relief Serve tour.
Some of the 35 projects they will complete include packing 100,000 meals for food banks and local organizations, feeding teachers, and sprucing up the exterior of three Charleston-area schools.
Logan Catoe of Northwood Baptist Church says he hopes they can build long-standing partnerships with these schools to continue providing services to them.
“We’re going to be able to build picnic tables for them, we’re going to be able to plant flowers and do things like that. Just little things that as a church we may not have the resources for, the school may not have the resources for, but an organization like send relief supports all of that. They give us the tools and supplies to accomplish all of these things. Cato says.
Catoe says it’s not too late to volunteer, they’re looking to complete 35 projects in 48 hours and can use more volunteers. He says it was a team effort with the city, state and community to organize this number of outreach events for the community.
Volunteers can come to Northwoods Baptist Church in North Charleston on Friday and Saturday between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. The church’s address is 2200 Greenridge Rd. in North Charleston.
