We're Headed Back to School
2017 Putting for Palmetto Place
This summer has been full of fun adventures, new experiences, and lazy summer days but they're quickly coming to an end. Next week our college students will start moving into their dorm rooms and our other students have less than a month of summer left.
What does success look like?
Save the Dates: Our annual Putting Party and Golf Tournament are coming up! Join us on Thursday, Oct. 19th from 6-9 at City Market Vista for our Putting Party and Monday, Oct. 23rd at noon for our Golf Tournament.

June is National Zoos and Aquariums Month!
July is a very exciting month for us as we have some fun activities planned. We'll be taking the kids on our annual beach trip in just a matter of days
June Needs List
Our kids have loved visiting the zoo in the past. From exploring the new exhibits to zip lining across the Saluda River there is something for kids of all ages. You can help us celebrate National Zoos and Aquariums Month by donating tickets for our kids.
Join us at Spirit Communication Park!
The kids are out of school for the summer and that means more lazy mornings around the house, more time spent in the backyard, and a new set of needs! In addition to our June Needs List we're also sharing our summer wish list.
It's Graduation Season!
Join us on July 17th at the Columbia Fireflies game!
This year there are 3.5 million students expected to graduate high school, a milestone each one of them has spent their entire lives working toward. But did you know that kids who have been in foster care are 50% less likely to graduate by the time they turn 19?
