Thanks for your support, no matter how small a task may seem – it makes a significant difference!
Volunteering with Palmetto Kids/Palmetto Works for the past two years was one of the best decisions I made while attending Coastal. Not only do you get to play a part in enriching children’s lives but, Rev. Reaves was also one of my biggest supporters then and now. The atmosphere is contagious and all around enjoyable. The kids are wonderful, and the experience is truly one I will never forget. If thinking of becoming a volunteer, Palmetto Works is one I would count in!
Working with Palmetto Kids over the past four years has been an unforgettable experience. My initial goal was to make an impact in the lives of local children in my community. Subsequently, I can say that the people I have met while volunteering have made an equivalent, if not more of an impact on my life. This is an opportunity to give back, gain knowledge, and grow as an individual!
I volunteer because giving back is the one thing that makes my heart smile and keeps me balanced. I do it because I don’t want to see children in under served communities fall behind because they lack support! What encourages me is knowing that I’m making a difference one child at a time by doing God’s will….I love you right back!!!!
