Agapé Hospice seeking volunteers

Agapé volunteers all have one thing in common: a calling and willing heart to serve. From teens to senior adults from all cultures and backgrounds, Agapé has a role you can fill. Our volunteer team members are such a huge part of who Agapé is, and we would love to have you on our team. We currently have volunteer positions opened in five counties: Allendale, Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, and Jasper. If you are interested or would like more information please contact Ashlee Powers, Volunteer Coordinator at 843-473-6204 or by email at

Lions Club adding eyeglass dropboxes

In honor of World Sight Day, Oct. 10, the Beaufort Lions Club will place additional drop boxes for eyeglasses donations in various businesses and locations around the area during the week of Oct. 6-12. Used prescription eyeglasses, unused contact lens, hearing aids, and cell phones are collected, sent to S.C. Lions Charitable Services in Columbia, sterilized and graded, and then provided to doctors to distribute to patients in developing areas of South America. 

Permanent donation boxes are at the Scott Street library, the St. Helena Library, Beaufort Memorial Hospital, AMVets, the Naval Hospital, and local eye doctor offices. Additional boxes will be placed at TCL (library, health science, and the administration office) and at Sea Island Presbyterian Church.

Please plan to donate your used/no longer needed prescription eyeglasses and contact the Lions Club to help those less fortunate who need eyeglasses. The Beaufort Lions Club meets the first and third Monday of each month in the back room at Golden Corral – dinner at 6, meeting at 6:30. Please come and get to know us.
