We’re taking a look back and see all the good times the Savannah Quarters® residents have had in our community, and also at all the good deeds that we’ve accomplished together. Throughout 2019, we have been fortunate enough to support several causes that impact the residents and environment of the greater Savannah area.
Let’s take a look at the various causes we supported:
YMCA of West Chatham
We were thrilled to be the host of an Angel Tree this year, which allowed us to sponsor 65 families. Our residents selected ornaments and then provided gifts and necessities to the sponsored person or family in need. It was a true testament to our community’s loving and caring spirit, and we’re so proud of them.
The YMCA of West Chatham is known for providing exceptional programs for our community’s youth. They offer a variety of after-school programs, healthy living offerings, social services and much more.
During the week of Giving Tuesday, we ran a social media contest asking our community to nominate their favorite local nonprofit or charity. We then randomly selected one to gift $500. The response was amazing, with nearly 50 nominations throughout the week on our various social media channels. We were thrilled that the winner was P.A.C.K.!
P.A.C.K of Savannah is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to helping meet the basic needs of children in our community including food, clothing and basic necessities. Their mission is faith-inspired and welcomes everyone to join their cause.
America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia
The Club at Savannah Quarters® participated in Taste of Savannah, the premiere event of the Savannah Food & Wine Festival. Our booth offered samplings of food from our club’s menu. Proceeds for our club went to Second Harvest of America of Coastal Georgia, amounting to $2,355.
America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia is our local food bank, dedicated to helping those in the Coastal Georgia and Savannah area combat hunger and food insecurity. Their amazing services include groceries for low-income seniors, the Kids Café – which gives children a safe, nurturing after-school space – the Partner Market Place which distributes over 18 million pounds of food and the Mobile Food Pantry.
The Bee Cause Project
Early in the summer, we hosted Honey Daze at Savannah Quarters®, a family-friendly event that featured kid activities, bee-themed food and drinks and, of course, honey products. The Bee Cause Project was there educating guests about their cause, and we were able to donate $2,000 to their cause. Taylor’s Landscaping provided pollinator-friendly plants to early attendees of the event. Money raised allowed the Bee Cause Project to develop honeybee hive observations to local area schools.
The Bee Cause Project is a not-for-profit that installs observation honeybee hives in schools worldwide, with the mission to provide the next generation with opportunities to understand, engage, and learn from honeybees in order to connect with the natural environment while developing STEAM skills.
New Year, New Causes
We are looking forward to the new year, and we’re excited to support more local nonprofits and charities through a variety of fun, engaging events and activities. See you in 2020!
