On February 18, 2020, Seabrook Island Village (SIV) hosted its first event bringing together its members and volunteers. With approximately 50 people in attendance, participants engaged in a lively “getting to know you” activity while enjoying a variety of refreshments. For the business portion of the meeting, a presentation by SIV Board President Sally Kimball discussed the current status of SIV and this was followed by inspiring testimonials from member Vera Jean Ruff and volunteer Paul McLoughlin. Round table discussions were then held to gather feedback and suggestions about the services provided through SIV.
The purpose of Seabrook Island Village (SIV) is to provide personal assistance services to area residents that help them to remain independent at home as long as it is safe to do so and engaged in the community. SIV volunteers deliver services which may include, but are not be limited to transportation, companionship visits, reassuring calls, minor home maintenance, and basic help with technology.
To date, SIV has 21 members and 42 volunteers. If you are interested in learning how to become a member or a volunteer, visit seabrookislandvillage.org or call 843-580-2088.
