The Deep Well Project:
Islanders Helping Islanders for Over 40 Years
The Deep Well Project was founded in 1973. Since then, it has been supported by individuals, businesses, religious institutions, foundations, clubs, schools and various other organizations. It is the island's charity — truly islanders helping their neighbors in need — and reflects the caring community in which we live.

BACK TO SCHOOL UNIFORMS & SCHOOL SUPPLIES
RECAP for 2016
Deep Well issued 961 uniform vouchers and supplied school supplies for 714 students! Thanks to all our donors for making our Children's Program a success.
All schools on Hilton Head Island require students to wear uniforms. Although they can be as simple as specified shirt types and colors and specific skirts/trousers, it can often be beyond many already-stretched budgets.
Each year, Deep Well provides vouchers which can be used to purchase approved uniform clothing at a pre-arranged provider's facilities. The $50 per child voucher doesn't cover all costs, but goes a long way toward easing the strain on a family's budget.
Since 2010, our voucher program has helped over 6,954 children with uniforms and supplies
In addition, Deep Well also pulls together a package of school supplies that gives each child the basic tools they're expected to have when each school year starts.
