Giving Thanks for Those Who Give Back

Tis the season to show thanks. What better way to do that than to reflect back through some of our favorite non-profit organization's Instagram accounts?  Non-profit organizations play a huge role in the Lowcountry, supporting great causes from local agriculture to development of social and emotional skills for kids. There are so many great organizations out there, it was hard to choose just a few to feature in this post. See below for simple ways to give back, this holiday season, in the Lowcountry and beyond:

  • Commit to follow one of these accounts or sign up for their mailing list, to learn more about what it is they do and how you can get involved.
