What We Do... The Point is a women’s non-profit organization dedicated to supporting local groups in the Lowcountry that focus on the needs of women who are suffering from the anguish of ill health and those who are striving to repair the structure of their family. The Point offers financial support to the community by coordinating fundraising events and providing service by volunteering their time and talents. From its members, The Point requires participation, dedication, and desire, and in return provides fellowship, fun, and flexibility while responding to the needs of organizations and individuals in crisis.
Why We Do It.... To promote and empower women in all phases of life, including education and general living. To assist women in the endeavor to be free from all forms of oppression. To encourage other women to help make a difference in their community.
Who We Help... The Point has supported Hollings Cancer Center, Barrier Island Medical Clinic, LEAP Low Country Equine-assisted Psychotherapy, My Sister’s House, Habitat for Humanity, Lowcountry Firefighter Support Team, and several individual families through members’ contributions, community supported events, corporate sponsorships, and donations in kind. Since 2006, The Point has contributed more than $732,000 and countless volunteer hours. To date, our group has been able to donate 95% of all monies raised. This year’s benefactors will be Hollings Cancer Center, Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic, Blessing Basket, Meals on Wheels, LEAP, Lowcountry Firefighters Support Team, and Our Lady of Mercy.
