Who We Are
Happily Helping Others
Grandmother & Grandaughter Team Sandra and Ty of First Impression of South Carolina know that sometimes all it takes is a little support and a lot of kindness towards others to make a difference in their lives. The core of our efforts is to assist those in crisis with respect and dignity by providing them with outreach, information, referrals, and case management. Assist families with nonperishable food and other household essential through the Stella H.M. Cook Community Cupboard, and provide Health & Wellness education.
