Deep Well provides complete Thanksgiving Dinners for eligible applicants. Deep Well also provides Christmas Dinners. Families may be referred by local schools or by calling the Deep Well office for details of the application procedure. Last year we provided 441 Christmas Dinners and 386 Thanksgiving Dinners, thanks in no small part to our long-time major turkey donor, Truffles Restaurants.
Volunteers sort Christmas Presents
In both of these volunteer run programs, we enjoy partnerships with many local churches and charitable groups. We also are proud to say that many local families will “adopt” a family who is less fortunate and provide them with holiday cheer. This is a very popular program locally. The “Adopt A Family” concept has become a Hilton Head tradition with many locals. Last year, 543 families received gifts through this type of program. Thanks to all the many families, churches, groups and organizations who gave a family joy at Christmas time.
Deep well and its donors also provide toys and gifts for children. Toy drives such as Rolling Thunder sponsored by a local motorcycle group, school collections of gifts and toys, and many private donations helped Deep Well last year to provide a Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas for many families who would not have been able to share in these special holidays.
