Girl Scouts Awarded Grant
Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina received a $1,228 grant from HOME Community Fund of Coastal Community Foundation of SC to purchase ten CPR training manikins and supplies for first aid/CPR training. To ensure the health and safety of the girls, first aid and CPR training is required every 2 years for at least one adult volunteer in every Girl Scout troop. “The strength of the Girl Scout program rests in the voluntary leadership of adult volunteers and the quality of their training plays an integral role in their success,” says Loretta Graham, CEO.
HOME Community Fund was established as a demonstration of HOME Telecom’s sustained, long term commitment to the growing community it serves. Coastal Community Foundation of SC empowers individuals, families, and organizations to make lasting impact through permanent, endowed funds for charitable giving and serves eight counties in coastal South Carolina: Charleston, Beaufort, Berkeley, Colleton, Dorchester, Georgetown, Hampton, and Jasper.
