The Sea Islands Ladies Bible Study Group is a group of approximately 30 women who meet weekly at the Lakehouse to study the Bible. They have a Christmas project every year which they take on with enthusiasm. This year the Bible Study Group adopted Blessing Basket for their Christmas outreach and supplied 130 wrapped Christmas gifts as their contribution.
Sea Islands Blessing Basket is sponsored by the Sea Island Hunger Awareness Foundation. Their mission is to supply needed good, healthy, nutritious food for their constituents. They serve 480 people every month, including 55 grandparents raising grand and great grandchildren. They also supply recipes monthly to encourage women to try vegetables they don’t normally eat and they also offer health education classes on a regular basis. At one of their fresh produce giveaways in December, they are offering free blood pressure screening.
Thanks to the efforts of the Ladies Bible Study Group and the Blessing Basket, many people will receive gifts they would not otherwise have. It never fails to impress this reporter how much good so many volunteer groups on Seabrook do to help those in need.
