Foster Family Basket Drive for Closet of Hope (Remote)
Closet of Hope

From 10/18/2021 to 11/19/2021

For the upcoming season to be thankful, the team at Closet of Hope is thankful for foster families. The entire COH team sees how hard these foster parents work, how much they change their life, and the pain that they encounter because of being a foster parent. 

We want a way to just say thanks to these amazing people in our community. 

Foster family baskets are a way to just supply a few household items for the entire family as a small token of our appreciation. Each basket can be a laundry basket, with a few items inside such as laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, paper plates, and other household items along these lines. 

This may seem like a small thing to do for another person, but some of these families have more than 10 children in their homes and a small gift of this nature, can help just take a little bit of pressure off of them.

Toy Drive for Closet of Hope (Remote)
Closet of Hope

From 10/18/2021 to 12/08/2021

Partner with Closet of Hope to raise awareness to the foster care system and support a child in foster care! Closet of Hope focuses on supporting children that are involved with DSS through tangible items. The toy drive last year supported over 300 children in the Lowcountry area. This helps ensure that these children are able to have a happy holiday. 

How it works: Our annual toy drive will be held on December 10th and 11th. Foster parents will sign their child up in advance and then be able to come to Church of Cane Bay. All of the toys will be out for display at this time and the person shopping selects the toys that the child would enjoy the most. There is a point system to ensure fairness for all foster families throughout the event. All donations would need to be received by December 8th for processing!

Keep North Charleston Beautiful Coalition

From 10/22/2021 to 11/19/2021

Keep North Charleston Beautiful will soon be adding a little garden library to our reading nook in the Park Circle Butterfly Garden.

Volunteers will need to collect the books to donate to KNCB and then coordinate a drop off at the KNCB office. If desired, volunteers may also purchase books from KNCB's book wishlist and they will be shipped directly to the KNCB office: https://a.co/9Jrs2LV

Collect Cardboard for our Pollinators! (Remote)
Keep North Charleston Beautiful Coalition

From 10/14/2021 to 11/19/2021

Keep North Charleston Beautiful uses sheets of cardboard as a natural, compostable weed barrier in gardens. This allows us to cover weeds in the gardens in a way that does not harm the pollinators. Cutting down the cardboard into smaller pieces prior to any volunteer activities allows volunteers to work more efficiently during workdays.

We need volunteers to collect cardboard and cut it down into smaller pieces for us to use in the gardens. The smaller pieces will then be bagged up and need to be delivered to the KNCB office (located in the Felix Davis Community Center at 4800 Park Circle, North Charleston, SC 29405).

(Instructions for cutting down cardboard will be provided to any volunteers participating in this opportunity.)

Create Thank-You Bags for Volunteers! (Remote)
Keep North Charleston Beautiful Coalition

From 10/14/2021 to 11/19/2021

Keep North Charleston Beautiful coordinates volunteer events throughout the year, and as part of these events, we provide volunteers with small thank-you gifts to show our appreciation for their service. One of the gifts our volunteers love the most is thank-you bags filled with candy and bags of snacks that they can enjoy while volunteering and after they are finished.

We are looking for a group of volunteers who can donate the snacks and candy for these volunteers (and pack the candy into small Ziploc bags—snack or sandwich size) to donate to KNCB. Favorite items include: Cheez-its, individual packs of crackers, Skittles, M&M’s, and small bags of popcorn. Items with longer expiration dates are preferred to minimize any waste. 

We keep these snacks in glass jars so that volunteers can easily grab a pack of crackers or a bag of candy.

Help us Create Greeting Cards! (Remote)
Keep North Charleston Beautiful Coalition

From 10/14/2021 to 11/19/2021

Keep North Charleston Beautiful volunteers create handmade greeting cards that are used throughout the year as thank-you cards, birthday cards, and as a program fundraiser. These cards feature photographs of KNCB’s different projects throughout North Charleston.

1-2 volunteers are needed to help assemble these cards. This activity does require skill as the cards are sometimes sold as fundraisers, so they must meet very high quality standards. Volunteers must be comfortable using a paper-cutter to cut to specific measurements and be comfortable assembling the different parts in a neat and orderly fashion.

KNCB will provide all the materials needed to assemble the cards along with training and instructions for volunteers to be able to assemble them off-site.
