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.

Back-To-School:  
Uniforms & School Supplies

  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.
