February 2018: HERO Night

You don’t need spider-powers, a fancy cape or an indestructible shield; a HERO is anyone who gives time and attention to something bigger than oneself.

GIVATION partnered with Pleasant Hill Elementary School and Paws for a Cause to host HERO NIGHT on Tuesday, February 13, 2018.

Through a mix of education and activity, children of all ages were invited to learn about the different ways they can help make a positive impact on our community.

The following organizations joined us:

  • Bureau of Public Health Preparedness, Midlands Region
  • Carolina Wildlife Center

  • Family Promise of the Midlands
  • Happy Wheels
  • Harvest Hope Food Bank

  • Palmetto Patriot Project
  • PHES Paws for a Cause
  • PHES Service Learning Committee
  • Senior Resources/Meals on Wheels
  • Society of St. Andrew
  • Special Olympics SC
  • White Knoll High School Student Government Association

Students and their families got to learn how they could help these organizations make our community a better place while enjoying an evening of games, crafts and more!

  • Making cards for our troops stationed overseas
  • Weaving plastic bags into mats for the homeless
  • Assembling blankets for preemies in the NICU

We look forward to working with Pleasant Hill Elementary School to grow the good and make this an annual event!!
