The financial toll that the pandemic has taken on small businesses is heartbreaking and overwhelming. Many were forced to close their doors for good while others attempt to stay open despite financial hardships. These businesses are the backbone of the Lowcountry! As we head into the holiday season it is more important now than ever to support our community and shop local. In addition to supporting local business the Mt. Pleasant Chamber of Commerce will be hosting several events to give back! 

To kickoff the operation, the group is hosting the Do Good Drive Through & Feeding on December 6 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Patriots Paint.

At the event, “donors will stay in their cars while dropping off items for participating nonprofits” including:

  • East Cooper Community Outreach– collecting canned food (fruits, vegetables, soup) and cleaning supplies (laundry detergent and dish soap)

  • Shifa Clinic– collecting hygiene items (soaps, shampoo, lotion) and NEW towels, any size

  • East Cooper Meals on Wheels– collecting cat/dog food and healthy non-perishable breakfast items

  • Windwood Family Services– boys socks (ankle and crew cut), boxer briefs and white undershirts (youth small to men’s XL), men’s deodorant, body wash, and shampoo

Participants will also be able to donate blood at the Red Cross Bloodmobile, which will be set up at the event. Boxed dinners will be provided for all unemployed hospitality workers, and carolers will be singing.

The Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce Foundation is also hosting Operation Hospitality Relief, a fundraiser “to establish a holiday assistance fund for hospitality workers who have been adversely affected financially by the pandemic.” Donations can be made via Venmo to @MountPleasant-Chamber, or donations can be sent to
