Camp Wildwood

Camp Wildwood began years ago because too few Hampton County youth knew how to swim. Ever since, it has provided an outlet for swimming lessons and other outdoor exploration through its annual, weeklong summer camp, which is open to youth from Hampton and surrounding counties.

Human Needs Grants

American Red Cross

The aim of the Carolina Lowcountry chapter of the Red Cross is simple: to help those who need assistance. Extending support to those in need down the street, after a house fire to offering international disaster relief and supplying blood, the American Red Cross provides a diverse list of services to a broad range of people. Although extensive in its service offerings, the Red Cross fully relies on volunteers to complete their work.
