Hootie And The BlowFish Foundation Grant

Girls in Calhoun, Clarendon, Orangeburg and Lee counties will have the chance to enjoy the Girl Scout experience thanks to a $6,000 grant awarded to Girl Scouts of Eastern SC from The Hootie and The Blowfish Foundation Fund of Central Carolina Community Foundation.

The funds are allocated to be used for:

Girl Scout Membership fees

Starter Kits

Camperships

 New Leader Kits

Girl Scout meeting signs

Loretta Graham, CEO of Girl Scouts of Eastern SC said, "We are so excited about this grant! We love that 'home-town' guys are helping 'home-town' girls. The Hootie and The Blowfish Foundation does a wonderful job in making a positive impact and improvements in the lives of our South Carolina youth. We are thrilled to be a partner with them in that common mission to make the world a better place. Now, girls in those counties who might not have had an opportunity to become a Girl Scout but wanted to be a Girl Scout will be able to realize that dream."

Our CEO on the Mother Emanuel Church Shooting in Charleston

Our hearts are heavy today in our city and state in light of the Mother Emanuel Church shooting in downtown Charleston last night.

It is truly unspeakable and unfathomable that people would or could lose their lives while gathered together in prayer under the roof of God’s house.

Ms. Sharonda Singleton was one of the victims. She was a track and field coach at Goose Creek High School. She was a speech therapist. She was the mother of one of our own Girl Scouts who is now a 15 year old motherless child. She was the biggest fan of her son Chris, a baseball player for Charleston Southern University. She was not only a tremendous asset to our lives and the lives of those in our community, we also knew her as a registered Girl Scout in our council…We cannot begin to convey the amount of sadness and the level of loss that we feel throughout our city, our state and our council.

Our support as a council will be to support the families of those killed. While this is being classified as a Hate Crime, we as a council will approach this heartbreak and tragedy with love. We will offer all the love, prayer and support that we can as individuals and one collective voice to the families of the victims and the people of Mother Emanuel Church.

Loretta Graham, CEO Of Girl Scouts of Eastern SC
