Volunteering

It’s wonderful to connect with local non-profit organizations when you are new in town. It’s a great way to meet people, get to know the area, and feel invested in the community.

There are countless non-profit organizations that work hard to support the Lowcounty. In fact, over 120 local 501c3 organizations were nominated for our 200th Home Sale for Charity. This list represents many of the organizations that help to make our community a better place to live with the commitment of local volunteers.
