For my first month of Crumbs 4 Charleston, $350 was raised for One80 Place!
Why One80 Place?
Working in the public relations industry for restaurants, I am often treated to extravagant meals that I am lucky to indulge in. While I try my best to be thankful and recognize how grateful I am for my #workperk meals, I would be completely lying if I said I could imagine what it would be like to not have access to food every day. To be homeless and hungry is a concept so foreign to many of our everyday lives but a reality for many people in the city of Charleston. One80 Place is a remarkable shelter downtown that hands out free meals to the homeless 365 days of the year- averaging 185 lunches a day. The food they serve and prepare, along with kitchen supplies come from a budget of zero dollars- relying solely on donations from the community. In addition to providing food, One80 Place also offers shelter and support services like medical exams, counseling, and employment courses to help people turn their lives around. One80 Place is an organization you can be confident in giving your money towards- one that will make a direct and meaningful impact to many who need it right in our own backyard.
