Seabrook Island Village (SIV), Neighbors Helping Neighbors, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization totally staffed by volunteers with the goal of helping Seabrookers of any age remain independent and active in the community. The program officially launched in January 2020 to fulfill SIV’s mission of providing a variety of services to Seabrookers through a group of trained and vetted volunteers. Initial service offerings included:
- Transportation to and from medical appointments and local shopping
- Basic home chores and maintenance
- Computer/electronic assistance
- General support (friendly visits and phone check-ins)
In March of 2020, we pared back some of our services due to the pandemic; but throughout the year, SIV continued to provide transportation to critical doctor appointments and grocery shopping services. This year we hope to resume providing a full complement of services, and possibly introducing some social events.
Might these services be of interest to you or someone you know? If so, the annual cost to become a member is $180 per person. We also now offer an option for those with short-term needs (i.e., post-surgery, colonoscopy, eye doctor appointments, etc.). The cost for this is $25/month.
Might you be looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity? Would you like to make a difference in the lives of your neighbors and make our community an even better place? Consider becoming an SIV volunteer.
If you answered yes to either or both of the above, please give us a call at 843-580-2088 and leave a message, or visit us at seabrookislandvillage.org.
