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.

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."

The 2016 HELP STAMP OUT HUNGER food drive was a resounding success thanks to all of you who set out bags of non-perishable food Saturday, May 14!  Now an army of Deep Well volunteers will begin to sort, stock and store it all.  Our new pantry facility makes the job easier than in past years.  Go to the drop down box, "HOW WE HELP" and click on "FOOD" to see a picture of our new pantry.

Family Literacy 360 program is in response to requests from the community to bring together children and their parents to develop literacy skills.  The objective is to break the inter-generational cycle of low literacy and teach parents that they are their child’s first teacher and that they can be successful at it. The curriculum includes school/teacher learning/homework skills; health, wellness, nutrition; family finance, community; transportation; and computer skills.

The Literacy Volunteers of the Lowcountry began this innovative program in mid-January using the new Deep Well facility.  It is generously funded by the Family Dollar Literacy Foundation, Beaufort County Human Service Alliance, and First Nonprofit Foundation.

The program is designed to increase the stability of the family by:

  • Increasing the use of English and reading in the home; and
  • Improving overall literacy.

Parents will be given books to read at home to their child.
