We Help Build Communities By
Making Community Matter
Special Community Programs
Resident Driven Projects
Local resident farmers and community members help plant and grow 9 flower beds and a garden. With an irrigation system installed and tedious upkeep from volunteers, the community garden serves on average 30 resident families per harvest which is also open to the general public.
Two sheds were constructed by 8 community residents. Residents wanted secure storage for gardening and pantry equipment. They collaborated, selected a design plan, and worked diligently for two weeks constructing and painting their own community storage sheds
Community Homeless Drive/Point In Time Count
GIDC, Berkeley County School District, Continuum of Care, and First Presbyterian Church launched a collective initiative to bring awareness to homelessness in Berkeley County to allocate federal funds to the current issue; Community resident Tacisha Pickney empowers her community to contribute to homeless drives and collaborates with Berkeley County School district future initiatives
Community Picnic Tables/Benches
Tyler McCoy is a community resident of Mitton Lane with an amazing wood-work skill set. He used his natural talent to share with the community kids and local residents in a self promoted program, “Creations with the Real McCoy” at the community center. What resulted was a three day life skills mentoring session and hands on construction of 6 community picnic tables that fold out into benches. These legacy seatings created safe spaces for gatherings and a story for our community youth to share as their personal memories.
