“I care.”  Two simple words tenderheartedly shown to our Lowcountry neighbors in need can be life-changing. Tragedy and devasting circumstances may strike unexpectantly.

Deep Well

Charlotte Heinrich steadfastly met our community’s need for clean water in 1971 by digging deeper wells to avoid polluted drinking water from shallow wells and recognized the necessity to assist the community with life’s essentials.
