The ARK of SC received grant from The CarMax Foundation

The ARK of SC has received a $1,000 grant from The CarMax Foundation. The ARK was awarded these funds as part of its 18th annual Race for The ARK from The CarMax Foundation Volunteer Team-Building Program.

“We are so thankful to have the support from The CarMax Foundation and CarMax employees for our annual fundraiser,” said Megan Severn, special events coordinator for The ARK.

For more than 21 years, The ARK has been assisting families throughout five counties (Dorchester, Berkeley, Charleston, Orangeburg and Colleton) in the Lowcountry. The ARK helps families cope with daily challenges of Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia through its services and resources.

Respite programs are offered in Summerville (Monday-Thursday) and in Harleyville (Wednesday) to give family caregivers a much-needed break from the stress of around-the-clock caregiving. The ARK also offers four support groups in Summerville, Moncks Corner and Harleyville; lunch & learn educational workshops; memory screenings; resource referrals; caregiver workshops; and first responder/law enforcement training.

The ARK is a local nonsectarian nonprofit outreach program providing comprehensive support services to families dealing with Alzheimer’s or related dementia. For more information, call 843-832-2357 or visit
