United Way of Horry County is partnering with United Community Bank this year on our May Day Bag program. Mobile Meals of the Grand Strand and Horry County Council on Aging will be delivering 1,000 May Day Bags to Horry County senior shut-ins. These bags will be filled with useful and necessary hygiene items. Volunteers and citizens of Horry County will have the opportunity to fill the bags with toiletries, small gifts, etc. to brighten a senior’s day. The bags will also include a letter from a local kindergartner as their way of paying it forward from United Way and CCU’s Caring for Kindergartners program.
Beginning in March 2021, You can help by picking up a bag at any Chamber of Commerce in Horry County (Conway, Little River, Loris, Myrtle Beach, and North Myrtle Beach) and fill it with the following items:
Toothbrush,Toothpaste, Soap/Body Wash, Deodorant, Shampoo, Tissue, Lotion/Powder, Stationery & Pens, First Aid Kit & a special gift item (i.e. socks, crossword puzzles, night light), plus anything else you feel is appropriate. All items must be new and sealed.
Here is how you and/or your company can participate:
Pick up the bags, fill them and drop off at your local Chamber of Commerce or at the United Way of Horry County office.
You may also drop off donated items, if you prefer, without a bag, at the same locations.
Or, send a monetary contribution to United Way of Horry County, P.O. Box 673, Conway, SC 29528
