Community Outreach

Here at South Carolina Swim Club, we are responsible for more than just our swimmers. Our entire community can be made better or worse by our actions, so we work intentionally for the good of those around us. You can read below about some of the ways we have reached out - and continue to reach out - to our community.

 

Low Country Aquatic Program

A win, win, win for all! This is a great relationship between nonprofit organizations to assist a population of children who have little to no access to swimming lessons and allow them to participate in an organized lesson program. SCSC contributes a monthly stipend to the LAPS program and in exchange, North Charleston Recreation Department provides lane space for SCSC at the Danny Jones pool. As a program, we encourage participation in the LAPS annual fundraiser, the Low Country Splash, a 2.4 or 5-mile swim along the Mt. Pleasant shoreline. 

 

Lowcountry Food Bank

We are proud to announce the completion of our Annual Spooky Food Drive. With the help of all our wonderful swim families, we were able to collect 680 pounds of food. According to the Lowcountry Food Bank, 1 pound of food equals 1.2 meals. Therefore, SCSC provided 816 meals to underprivileged families this holiday season!! All of the donations are sorted and packed by type, and then distributed to 300 partner agencies throughout the coastal counties depending on their needs.

When SCSC pools (pun absolutely intended) our time and talents, we can have a big impact on the communities in which we live. Each year, the different practice groups identify an organization to assist in them in their mission to give back to the community. A big THANK YOU to our group’s team parent volunteers who provide a huge amount of support to make these projects happen, and we are so grateful for their enthusiastic support. 

Stay tuned for updates about ongoing projects!
