ABLE Foundation ornament on sale

in Arts by

Are you looking for a perfect holiday gift? Look no further than the ABLE Foundation’s 6th annual commemorative ornament, on sale now. Each year the ornament has a Lowcountry theme; this year’s ornament features a starfish.

The nonprofit ABLE Foundation supports services and programs assisting individuals with special needs. In recent years, ABLE’s efforts have gone toward funding a summer camp, called Camp Treasure Chest, for children of all ages with special needs. In the absence of Camp Treasure Chest, these children would likely not have a summer camp experience. Funds from the state for summer services have been virtually eliminated, and the camp is almost solely supported through local fundraising and grants.
