(Berkeley County, SC) – Each year, The Berkeley Chamber’s Leadership Berkeley graduates select a class project. The project is directly related to circumstances or wishes of the community that the class has recognized through the participation in the Leadership Program.
This year’s Leadership Berkeley Project highlighted the needs for displaced and underprivileged children in the Berkeley County area by partnering with Jean’s Angels in packing 500 backpacks with essentials, such as food and hygiene kits for children and donating toys for their Annual Toy Giveaway for Sunday, December 17th in Moncks Corner, SC. During the Healthcare and Social Issues session, the class realized the trauma these young children experience, and the class wished to express their support to the program and services the organization provides.
Founded in 2015, Jean’s Angels is a non-profit organization that works with the homeless, domestic violence victims, gun violence victims, children with terminal illnesses, and any other individual experiencing or have recently experienced a traumatic event.
