Lowcountry Giving Day is a national event with local impact.



On May 6, 2014, the Lowcountry is joining more than 100 communities throughout the United States for a national day of local giving. Sponsored by the Coastal Community Foundation and through the generosity of the Pearlstine Family – each gift of $25 or more that you make to Rural Mission online on May 6 (12:01 a.m. – 11:59 p.m.) will be matched!

Lowcountry Giving Day will generate significant funds for causes right in our own backyard. We will be part of a movement to reignite the spirit of giving across the country and support causes in the community in which we live, work and play.

A note from our founder, Ms. Linda Gadson:

Hallelujah! We are super excited that we are one of the many local agencies chosen to share in this very special day of giving! I give God all of the thanks, praises and glory for the entire Pearlstine family and all of the other very generous donors who are participating in this lifetime event.

Rural Mission is completing 44 years of providing human services to the families of the Sea Islands. For so many years, we shared with the migrant farm workers, families and their children. However, now those services are being offered by many agencies. One of the headstart centers is located in our facilitiy on Johns Island.

We are focusing 90% of our attention on the poor housing conditions of the families whose homes can still be seen as those built in the early 1960s. We are changing that living style to that of quality living with decent housing, including repairing, replacing critical electrical problems, proper indoor facilities, clean drinking water and repairing roofs and porches. 

We thank each and every one of you for your generosity on this May 6th Day of Giving!
