Catholic Heart Work Camp raising funds
It is through service to others that we realize how truly blessed we all are.
As community leaders for the Catholic Heart Workcamp move forward to accomplish the goal of securing support for this outreach program, they are seeking sponsorship for part of the expense, and are doing so through fundraising efforts that will occur over the next 10 months, with car washes, yard sales, and pancake breakfasts at Applebee’s.
In support of their efforts they are seeking sponsors at the following levels: $100, or $10 a month from October to July; $325, which would be $32.50 a month; and of course, lump sum donations would be gladly accepted.
The cost per participant is $325, which does not include gas, food while traveling, activities or other expenses. Donations can be made through weekly collections, for Parish members, however, you are requested to make certain your donation is clearly marked for CHWC or Catholic Heart Workcamp; this way your donation is recorded for annual tax purposes, and to insure proper routing of funds to CWHC.
Supporting community members wishing to contribute may do so by calling Mike Heidkamp at (843) 364-6805 or emailing him at email@example.com.
The Mission of the Catholic HEART Workcamp is to revitalize communities and beautify homes for the elderly, disabled and those who cannot afford needed repairs. The goal of the camp is first, to inspire participants to serve in their local communities.
The second goal is to empower participants to live as Disciples of Christ through serving others; and thirdly, to foster the spiritual growth of each participant through the sacraments, Catholic faith sharing and prayer.
Seventeen individuals have been confirmed as participants, as of this date, and the leaders wish to take a total of twenty persons to the 2014 CHWC. Your support of this worthy cause would be appreciated by the sponsors.

St. Stephen resident Karen Wrighten serves as the Dean of Trident Technical College’s Berkeley Campus, where she, with the support of campus staff and TTC’s President Dr. Mary Thornley, have transformed a quiet, accomplished, beautifully sleeping campus, into a resilient one that is on the move.
The campus has increased its enrollment from a modest 474 attendee in 2008 to over 1,000 in the fall of 2014.
The college has increased the number and variety of course offerings as well, allowing students to complete an entire Associate of Arts degree, prior to moving on to complete a Bachelor’s degree at a four year college or university, if that is the desire of the student.
It has been a five-year journey for this St. Stephen resident as she and her team of dedicated workers. We are pleased to congratulate Dean Wrighten on the work being accomplished at Trident’s Berkeley Campus and wish her and the entire team, continued success.
