Help 4 Hope campaigns to feed our out-of-work neighbors and keep the doors of our restaurants open.
To kickstart the program, Watterson Family Foundation has purchased 1,000 cards, but they can’t do it alone. To keep this going, please click the link below to donate and help support our local restaurants while also providing meals to our fellow Lowcountry residents who are affected by this crisis.
As this global pandemic continues to unfold, we find ourselves experiencing various stages of grief: shock, denial, anger, and depression. The effects on our economy are unprecedented. So many lives have been turned upside down; jobs lost, businesses closed, families destitute, with no clear end in sight. The feeling of helplessness can be overwhelming, but it isn’t until we travel through these stages of grief that we are able to move toward hope.
It is in this spirit of hope that the Watterson Family Foundation has partnered with the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce and a team of local leaders to create a stimulus program to help stabilize our local economy. We have taken a collective approach to afford everyone the opportunity to participate in the rejuvenation of our economy. We are all in this together and together we will rise.
The Help 4 Hope Fund is providing economic support for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in the Lowcountry by feeding families, supporting restaurants, and saving jobs. Our goal is to raise $5,000,000 creating an economic stimulus program that will stabilize our local food-service industry.
- Help feed families affected by this crisis
- Support local restaurants by generating new business
