My name is Maddie Maniaci, and I am currently a junior at Early College High School. Our school focuses a lot on community service, and I want to focus my attention on hunger and homelessness in Horry County and how it affects our youth.
I have been involved in community service for three years. One of the most rewarding things I have done was volunteer at Help for Kids. Help for Kids is a nonprofit organization that assists the needy. They pack food for children for the weekends who are below the poverty line, so when they come back to school, they have food in their stomachs.
Help for Kids is located in Murrells Inlet. They take all kinds of donations, but they mostly need clothing and canned food.
If you are interested in donating or volunteering please call 843-651-4310 for more information.
