The burdens endured by many children in our community are difficult to comprehend. These “shadow children,” unseen until a crisis occurs, are St. Christopher’s Children. A community-based, all-volunteer, nonprofit organization, St. Christopher’s Children purchases basic clothing for children in critical need and refers them to medical professionals when no one else is there.
Together, We Will Make a Difference
“We will help as many of these children as possible toward a better tomorrow. Your contribution will make a difference. Please be there for these shadow children of Georgetown County.”
– Robert Pelletier, Founder, St. Christopher’s Children
