We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit providing the basic necessities so many children go without in the Darlington County (SC) School District.
In 2006, Daphne and Abe Areephanthu began this special non-profit for Darlington County, SC school children. Our mission is to enhance the lives of less fortunate children by demonstrating hope and compassion by providing them basic necessities they too often lack.
It all began with one program; school supplies and backpacks were collected and distributed to children who needed them. Today, Carolina's Kids, Inc. has four programs to help children: two community "Kids Closets," backpacks and school supplies, money for field trips, summer camps and summer enrichment activities, and "Hunger Busters" where we provide weekend food bags to help feed children when home from school. The children we help are referred to us by school personnel and churches.
Carolina's Kids, Inc. continues to succeed because of the kindness of foundations and the people and businesses in the communities where we serve. We appreciate all of the local heroes who continue to support our work. We need you and appreciate you!
It has been said a child cannot learn if their basic necessities are not met. We are working very hard, with your help, to try and meet those needs of the less fortunate children in the Darlington County School District.
