Giving Tuesday
to Nov 28

Giving Tuesday

One of the main barriers for our children at the shelter is a lack of transportation. Our children are very involved in after school activities, recreational outings and more. Reliable transportation is also their way of commuting back and forth to school and appointments. This year for Giving Tuesday, we are raising funds for an additional van. Can we count on your support? Donate here!

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.

- Jason, 19


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.
