Our office and agents are always looking for ways to help our community. This year we are very happy to support Epworth Children’s Home for Christmas. Epworth is a Columbia facility that cares for children from severely stressed family systems and their goal is to nurture and love them by providing education, counseling, medical care and spiritual enrichment. Their aim is to break the destructive cycle of abuse, neglect and shame and replace it with an opportunity for each child to live a life of self-respect, responsibility and productivity.
While we were looking for ways to give back this year, we learned that Epworth had a fire, in May 2020, that destroyed their storage facility which included utility supplies and Christmas decorations. Our hearts go out to this organization even more now that we know about this tragic event.
In order to assist Christmas in this very strange year we have all experienced, we at J King Real Estate have decided to contribute to their needs. We hope that you will consider helping, as well. Please note that due to DHEC regulations, only new items can be donated. To make it easier to share their message with the community, Epworth Children’s Home has created a web page that shares everything they need assistance with.
They even went a step further and created wish lists with Amazon and Wal-Mart to make it easier for us to donate to their organization. When you purchase using one of these wish lists, the needed amounts are automatically adjusted to help the organization and the children get exactly what they all need. The wish lists also make it easy by automatically populating the Epworth Home’s shipping address.
Listed below is a link to the Epworth website which will take you to the Epworth’s web page where you can read about their specific needs and links to help them this season. Although the list is extensive, we want to encourage you to send at least one thing. We could really make a major impact on their lives by doing this simple thing. Please take action by December 7, 2020, to accommodate their Christmas preparations. If you are not using their wish lists, their shipping address is Epworth Children’s Home, 2900 Millwood Avenue, Columbia, SC 29205.
