Second Helpings

Our collective giving has once again made an impact on our island!  100+ Women Who Care Hilton Head Island proudly presented our third quarter recipient, Second Helpings, with a gift bag of checks totaling $7300!  The presentation to Maureen Korzik, Executive Director, took place in the courtyard outside her office, on Tuesday, February 9.

This organization, started in 1992, works to supply those in need with nourishing food.  The volunteers are on the road, seven days a week, rescuing food from area grocery stores that would have been thrown away.  They redistribute it to area agencies that serve the disadvantaged countywide.

Our donation will be used to make a difference right here at home!  Each volunteer team has a refrigerated truck to use for their assigned pickups and deliveries.  The food gets picked up in the morning and is delivered the very same day.  Our funds will be used to support the two trucks that deliver to those in need on our beloved Hilton Head Island.
