Locally headquartered Origin Point Brands this month announced a $10,000 community giving match to raise critical funding for nonprofit My Sister’s House, the Lowcountry leader in domestic violence survival.
John Wood, president of Origin Point Brands, has redirected corporate giving to substantially support My Sister’s House programs and clients. Introducing this month’s ‘May Match’ MSH giving campaign, Wood shared in an open letter, “We are all making a positive impact, each of us to our individual abilities. This chapter of community support has been much more involved and fulfilling than any contributions I made before giving to My Sister's House. Together we are helping those in need, changing lives, and making a difference close to home.”
To support MSH with a corporate or individual gift matched by OPB, donate by May 31st through: www.MySistersHouse.org/give
Individual and corporate giving contributes significantly to the stability of My Sister’s House. Serving the Lowcountry for over forty years, MSH provides a full suite of free survival programs for victims of domestic violence and their children. Thanks in large part to private donations, MSH has evolved far beyond shelter and now provides holistic support services, at no cost to victims, including:
24/7 Resource & Intake Hotline Operation, Private Emergency Shelter, Basic Needs Support, Individual DV Advocate Guidance, Transportation Assistance, Housing Access Support, Court Advocacy & Access to Justice, Individual & Group Clinical Therapy, Community Education & Awareness Events, and Partner Training & Outreach.
Tosha Connors, CEO of My Sister’s House, emphasized the May Match campaign’s importance: "Origin Point Brands’ campaign sponsorship is doubling the impact of every individual dollar donated – further strengthening the life-changing services we provide. OPB sets the bar for Lowcountry companies, supporting programs serving hundreds of local domestic violence survivors and their children annually. Their genuine compassion and commitment to our mission to break the cycle of domestic violence in the Lowcountry is evident in all they do to support MSH.”
Private individual and corporate donations support expanding services and developing new programs, like MSH’s recently-launched ‘Safe Haven Housing’ pilot providing survivors and their children with an extended recovery environment. Through Safe Haven Housing, Connors and the MSH staff work with clients to further strengthen the foundational elements of sustained independence, including access to employment, financial resources and budget management, and resource and support network development, through the ongoing provision of wrap-around MSH services. Charitable giving campaigns like ‘May Match’ empower MSH to continue breaking survival barriers through victim-focused, results-driven program innovations.
