Lowcountry Giving Day May 6

  • Sunday, May 4, 2014

Lowcountry Giving Day is a special day that takes place on May 6. It is designed to bring the Tri-county area together as one community to increase awareness of local nonprofits and to build their capacity in a sustainable way through new donors. On Tuesday, May 6th, Be a Mentor will be joining Communities in Schools and Reading Partners for a “Lift the Lowcountry” Happy Hour. The event takes place at 5 p.m. at Dig in the Park.

“We are so excited for Lowcountry Giving Day to raise awareness about the importance of mentoring in our community,” explains Kristin Cunningham, executive director. “Mentoring is a simple, but powerful act. Just a few hours each month spent talking and sharing between a caring mentor and a child transforms two lives – the mentor's and the child's. It's one of the most effective paths toward meaningful community development we have in the Lowcountry.”

Be a Mentor currently has three signature programs being implemented in various schools throughout the Lowcountry. The Lunch Buddy program fills the need for in-school mentoring for elementary and middle school children. Project SHINE focuses on career exploration, academic success and teaches the importance of setting and reaching goals at the middle school grade levels. The Career Path program matches mentors with high school students interested in similar career areas. Through weekly meetings, mentors work to instill confidence, build social and emotional skills, and ensure that every child has a caring adult in their lives.
