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.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

WHAT'S HAPPENING

 

FROM EMERGENCY FOOD to HOME REPAIRS to A DRIVE TO THE DOC to COVERING A RENT PAYMENT. 

Our emergency services run the gamut, from rent and utility payments to holiday dinners.  For a complete rundown of what we do and how we help on a year-round basis, click on the "How We Help" menu at the top.

You can read some true stories about how Deep Well helps -- just  go to "Your Donations At Work" in the menu above under "How You Can Help."

KEEP THE FOOD COMING
While the holidays are over, we're still in a period of high demand for food, each and every day.
Of course, there's always a need for all the other staples we provide.  Often on a stretched budget, people would otherwise go hungry so they can make their rent or utility payment.

Throughout the year, the list of needs is long. You can bring in food to help re-stock our shelves. Make financial contributions. Volunteer your time or skill, either on a regular basis or for special projects.  Support another organization's effort to help Deep Well. Or organize a "Help Deep Well" event in your club or neighborhood.  

A TON OF "THANK YOUs" ARE IN ORDER  
We've navigated through the always hectic holiday season, beginning just before Thanksgiving.  Special meals, our Santa Shop that helps strapped families have a little extra joy at Christmas -- and it's all enabled through the tireless efforts of our volunteers, and of the many individuals and organizations that work tirelessly to help us make it happen.  

THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS MADE A SWEET RETURN
Once a highlight of the holiday season on Hilton Head, this holiday lights spectacular known for years by it's Dove Street location, was reincarnated as the Dove Street Festival of Lights at Shelter Cove Towne Centre.  In addition to again being a holiday delight for all, it brought needed donations of money and food to Deep Well.

HARBOUR TOWN HOLIDAY LIGHTS SPARKLED ONCE AGAIN
For the 3rd straight year, this wonderland of lights, trees, giant ornaments and fun in the heart of the Sea Pines Resort was a blessing to visitors . . . and particularly to Deep Well.  Once again, local and visitors alike "dug deep" to help Deep Well.
