About Palmetto Place:
Palmetto Place is a home for kids and teens who have been abused, abandoned or neglected. It is our mission to provide a safe and supportive environment where these kids can heal from the wounds of trauma and are given hope for a chance at a brighter future.
Meet One of our Kids:
Going through a lot as a young man, I was on the streets pretty often. At one point, I was told I couldn’t stay at my house, I stayed in a box that night – and a few others. An extended family member, all I really have left, helped me find Palmetto Place. All of a sudden there was a chance for me to change and better myself. Surprisingly, for once, I feel safe. I still have some things holding me back, personal obstacles I’m working to overcome but Palmetto Place is helping me and it’s been a wonderful experience since day one. I’ve made life-long friends who are more like family and the staff really care about us and love us. I could go on, but these are just a few reasons why I love Palmetto Place.

You Can Help
Proceeds from the night's events will be donated to Palmetto Place. You can make an extra impact this Christmas for one of the kids in our home by bringing a gift card with you. Some of the kids favorite stores are Forever 21, Journey's, Rainbow, Plato's Closet, and Foot Locker. Gift cards to stores like Walmart, Amazon, and Target help us do last minute shopping for kids who come into our care and provide for kids who come in after the holidays too. Fast food cards in low dollar amounts are great rewards for good grades, achievements, and days that need a pick me up.
Join us as we Cool Off for Kids at Pelican's SnoBalls in West Columbia on Thursday, July 20 from 5-8 pm! A percentage of sales will be donated to Palmetto Place, and what better way to raise support for our children and teens than with some delicious snoballs? Just remember to mention us at the register, and we can't wait to see you there!
