Reaching Our Community



It’s too early to report the results of our 2021 Souper Bowl of Caring donations. It’s not too early to say that we’ve had a phenomenal response to our request for donations. The final tally will determine the amount we will receive in matching funds for the Million Dollar Challenge. (We will receive $1 for every $6 contributed or every 6 food items donated.) In addition to donations from our church family, many of our food donations have come from members of the community and from the Montessori parents and staff. (The school held a food drive for the pantry!) Thank you for your support of this year’s Souper Bowl of Caring.


In addition to the 93 people we regularly serve,we also provided 12 food bags (food for 2 meals for a family of 4) and 12 homeless bags for distribution by the City of Hanahan Police Department. Thank you to Kim West for packing the food bags and to the Montessori School for their help packing the bags for the homeless. Also, thanks to our “Pantry Helpers” Liam and Ellie Latcham.

ITEM OF THE MONTH – back by popular demand! Oatmeal (Food can be left at the church. If you need someone to pick up, please leave a message at the church. Thank you!


In spite of the Pandemic and the inability to hold in-person distributions, the HOC team still managed to provide clothing and school supplies in pre-ordered bags for 830 children in Charleston County Schools. Orangeburg and Summerville held modified distributions and served close to 1,000 children. Our church provided book bags, school supplies, socks, and underwear for those most in need at our two local elementary schools; provided emergency underwear for the Headstart program; and sent clothing and supplies to help homeless students in the Berkeley County School District.  Planning is now underway for the 2021 distribution. A decision will be made by mid-April as to how best to proceed.
