Kiawah Cares partners with Angel Oak Elementary (6134 Chisolm Road, Johns Island SC) in our goal to improve quality of life on the Sea Islands. We firmly believe that education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and Angel Oak works hard to initiate programs that give students the ability to do just that.
Kiawah Cares works with Angel Oak throughout the year: sending in volunteers with Reading Partners, providing uniforms before school starts for the fall and Christmas gifts through the Kiawah Giving Tree. In 2016, the Kiawah Cares Foundation funded Angel Oak’s summer reading and math program, designed to combat summer learning loss.
Volunteer opportunities are often available at the school, and those willing to act as tutors (through the Reading Partners program, with provided training and easy time commitments) are especially sought after. Visit our volunteer page to view current opportunities.
