Now that you are getting the tree ready, it’s time to get your 7th annual commemorative/collectable ornament from The Disabilities Foundation of Beaufort County (ABLE) before they are all gone. Each year the ornament honors something from our Lowcountry area and this year the “blue crab” was selected. The cost for each ornament is $10.
ABLE is a nonprofit organization that supports services and programs assisting individuals with developmental disabilities and special needs. ABLE’s ornament sales help fund Camp Treasure Chest for ages 6-21 with special needs. Without this camp many children would likely not have a summer camp experience because of their severe needs. Many families also do not get any help or assistance in the summer months with care so this also gives them a small break. Funds from the state for summer services have been virtually eliminated and the camp is almost solely supported through local fundraising, grants, ornament sales and a few other organizations.
Ornaments are available at several locations in the Beaufort area including: New Image Salon, 1615 Paris Avenue, Port Royal; Smiles by Wyle’s Dentistry, 27A Kemmerlin Lane, Lady’s Island; Budget Print, 510 Carteret Street, Beaufort; Lime Lite Salon, 612 Carteret Street, Beaufort; Deals, 724 Bay Street, Beaufort; LuLu Burgess, 917 Bay Street, Beaufort; Technical College of the Lowcountry(TCL), Testing Center, Bldg. 1, Ribaut Road, Beaufort; Dawn Frank CPA, 23 Professional Village Circle, Ladys Island; Offices of Disabilities and Special Needs Dept., 100 Clear Water Way, Beaufort
