The Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA) exists to break the destructive cycle
of child abuse and neglect by equipping parents, children and their caregivers with necessary skills, knowledge and values. All children deserve to be loved, nurtured and kept safe from intentional and unintentional harm.
This year we would like to make this a special Christmas for wonderful kids by hosting a Toy Drive. Please drop off any new unwrapped toys to the Golf Clubhouse by Wednesday, December 9 so that we can ensure the toys are received in time for Christmas. Just look for the big box with wrapping paper.
Would you like to spread some holiday cheer this year, while having a large impact on a family in need? Hope Haven of the Lowcountry, Child Advocacy and Rape Crisis Center, responds to the needs of child victims of abuse and adult victims of rape, sexual assault and incest in the South Carolina counties of Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, Jasper and Allendale. Hope Haven is accredited by National Children’s Alliance. For more information on Hope Haven visit www.hopehavenlc.org.
The Oldfield Community has supported this center for two years. Each year, we sponsor a family that has been impacted by abuse. Hope Haven provides Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for this family. Though these families struggle financially, they are always positive and appreciative. Our goal is to provide a nice Christmas to all the members of this family. Our Hope Haven Tree is located at the Sports Club.
To help, Community members can stop by the Sports Club where our Hope Haven Tree is located and pick a tag or tags from the tree; each of which is a “wish list” tag. These tags list the family members name, age, clothing size and 1 or 2 wish list items. Our goal is to have numerous necessary items as well as some fun wishful things as well. Each year we are excited by the response our Community has for this project.
All gifts need to be delivered to the Sports Club no later than Friday, December 18 by 5 p.m.
Help spread a little joy to our 4-legged friends this Holiday Season!
The Outfitters Center will be accepting donations to benefit the efforts of Maranantha Farms, a local animal shelter.
Maranantha Farms is comprised of two small farms devoted to rehabilitation of animals, accepting and working with any breeds, from horses to hamsters! They care for animals that are unable to be placed in foster homes and provide adoption services to try and place suitable animals to good forever homes. They are a 501(c)(3) Organization and rely heavily on both monetary donations and donations of food, toys and other pet products.
Here is how you can help. To cover the Farms basic expenses as well as extensive medical bills for the animals, Cash Donations are very much appreciated. Other items that are appreciated are pet food for any animal from hamster to horse, left over pet medications, food bowls, brushing and grooming items, blankets & sheets, collars, leashes, toys, and more. Please help us support the efforts of these generous and caring folks who are dedicated to helping injured, mistreated and abandoned animals. You may call Jill at 843-645-4604 for more information!
Please drop donations off at the Outfitters Center no later than December 20.
