Lowcountry Orphan Relief needs donations to continue helping Tri-County children
Lowcountry Orphan Relief a non-profit in the Tri-County is always giving back. They help thousands of abused and neglected children in the Tri-Country every year. But right now they need your help. Some of their shelves need to be re-stocked.
They say donations poured in over the holidays, but now they need help again with restocking.
These containers are full of toothpaste, soap and shampoo, "We could definitely use some more of that," said Christina Lope as she held a bin with the label 'hair bows'.
Christina Lope is in charge of children's events and volunteers at Lowcountry Orphan Relief.
But some bins still need filling, "We have one floss left," said Lope.
"We'll go through these within the next couple weeks or so, they go really fast," said Lope as she stood in front of several bins with labels such as floss, conditioner, combs, body wash, lotion and shampoo.
She says fully stocked bins can empty out quickly. "We can get upwards of 30-40 orders a day. And we never know the age, the sizes that are coming through the door," said Lope.
Just last week most of the bins were empty. Toiletries, school uniforms and shoes are some of their top needs right now.
"Shoes we run low on a lot because their usually asked for in the child's order so it's really important that we have shoes for kids. We can get 5, 10 even 15 referrals a day just for uniforms so this whole bunch can go just like that," said Lope.
They have an Amazon wish list which you can view here if you'd like to buy and donate items.
So far this year Lowcountry Orphan Relief has helped more than 300 children in the Tri-County.
