SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Boys & Girls Club of the South Coast Area this month raised $280,000 in charitable donations that will go toward helping kids in the community.
“We are overwhelmed by your generous support and that of so many others in our community,” the club said in a press release, thanking those who donated during its Great Futures Gala on Oct. 2.
“The past 20 months have taken an unthinkable toll on children—a social, emotional and academic toll,” the club added in the release. “All we can do is love them with everything we have, and be willing to do whatever it takes to support them.”
