The ARK of SC is pleased to announce being a grant recipient of The Employees Community Fund of Boeing South Carolina. Each year, Boeing employees not only go above and beyond by offering hundreds of thousands of hours of volunteer work in the community but by giving back monetarily with donations. The ARK was awarded $3,000 to support caregiver programming for the 2024 fiscal year.
“We are incredibly thankful to have the support from the employees at Boeing South Carolina,” said Peg Lahmeyer, Executive Director/ Co. “These funds will allow The ARK to continue to grow and expand our services in the community.”
For over 28 years, The ARK has been a local nonprofit organization assisting families throughout five counties (Dorchester, Berkeley, Charleston, Orangeburg and Colleton County) in the Lowcountry. The ARK helps families cope with daily challenges of Alzheimer’s Disease or related dementia through respite care, family support programs, caregiver consultations and educational classes. The ARK is funded primarily by grants, donations and fundraising events.
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. Support groups, lunch & learn educational workshops, memory screenings, resource referrals, caregiver workshops, and First Responder/Law Enforcement training are also offered.
