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.

RIGHT NOW — we're restocking our supplies with the many resources we provide throughout the year, from food to daily hygiene products.  And
our financial support, in the form of paying electric bills and the like is in full swing.

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."

WE'RE IN URGENT NEED OF FOOD!  Here's a list of what we need most to meet the increasing, never-ending demand:

Breakfast Cereal
Spaghetti Sauce
Rice & Rice Side Products
Instant Potatoes & Potato Side
Canned Port & Beans
Canned Fruit
Macaroni & Cheese Boxes

Especially for the
Upcoming Holidays

Canned Corn
Canned Green Beans
Cornbread Mix

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.  

RELOCATION ACTIVITY HAS BEGUN — In early March, we received our official "advance notification" that the County (and Hilton Head Island Airport) is beginning the process to acquire Deep Well's building, among others.
