Shop with a Cop 2019

Are you looking for a way to help the community this Holiday Season? 

Shop with a Cop is a program here in Irmo, SC that was started to help families in need. The idea was for the Irmo Police Department to partner with the community in order to raise funds to adopt families in the community and provide food, clothing, and toys for them during the holiday season. 

During the month of November, the process starts with "No Shave November-December" to start conversation and raise awareness of the campaign. 

Once funds are raised, Cops will go shopping with the families in need and help them pick out the items they need from the store.

This project is a wonderful way to bring the community together in a positive way.

To donate to this project, mail your contribution to PO Box 2692, Irmo, SC 29063, or deliver it in person to the Irmo Police Department. Checks should be made payable to IPDCF. 

 

For more information, contact our agent Jason King, or Erica Watts with Prime Lending! Feel free to ask them any questions about your home buying needs, too.

Halloween is over, now what?

 

Halloween is over, so you may be wondering what to do with the leftover carved/un-carved pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, etc. Here are a few ideas on how to transform your spooky decorations into classic fall-themed decorations and meals:

Take your leftover pumpkin seeds and make a tasty snack for your holiday parties

Take the pumpkin, carved or not, put a bowl inside and make a stylish candy dish. Put it on your fireplace or kitchen table and make it a nice center piece.

Take the pumpkins (even the carved ones!) and paint them your favorite fall colors to add some stylish flare all over the house.

Finally, cover the pumpkins with a cozy fabric for a whole new look. Put them on your front porch to match the colorful falling leaves outside. 

With a few of these ideas in place, your house will be ready for fall in no time!
