Welcome to The Deep Well Project!
Click on "News At The Well" for details of our April 7th Anniversary Celebration on this April 7 from 1-4PM at Honey Horn! Everyone's invited.
The Deep Well Project is a non-profit organization serving the basic needs of the less fortunate on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Founded in 1973, The Deep Well Project provides a hand up, rather than a hand out.
Making a Difference -- For 40 Years
Deep Well was founded in 1973. And since then, it has become a living example of Islanders helping Islanders. You would be hard pressed to find an individual, church, school, civic or social organization, that has not contributed either money or food or time to help fellow islanders in need.
Last year, Deep Well provided:
- 64,000 Nutritious Meals
- 711 Emergency Rent or Utilities payment for those facing eviction or termination of service
- 191 Hotel nights of Emergency Shelter for those displaced from their home
- 1,051 Christmas Dinners, and Gifts
- 150 Emergency Livable Housing repairs and
- 555 Deliveries of Basic Furniture
to families on the Island who have fallen on hard times and were temporarily unable to support themselves or to afford necessary repairs to a home to meet the basic living standards.
Deep Well is a volunteer based organization with a minimum of paid staff. Our wonderful volunteers contributed over 11,750 hours to collecting donated food and items, delivering food, providing necessary basic repairs, running the office and interviewing clients or otherwise serving their community last year.
We Need Your Help
Deep Well is supported primarily by private donations and by volunteers. We need your help to continue our work.
Join the festivities at Honey Horn on Sunday, April 7, from 1PM to 4PM.
Thanks to some special supporters, we're hosting a celebration to say "Thanks" to the entire community. There will be food and beverages, at minimal cost, live entertainment, activities for the kids. It'll be a great chance for folks who have been helped by Deep Well and those who have helped Deep Well help the needy, to relax, mingle, and be grateful for the warm, caring spirit that has long made Hilton Head Island a special place to live.
A special thank you to our wonderful recent donors
