Christmas with Epworth

At Epworth, Christmastime is a wonderful time of year…and this year we are already seeing a tremendous outpouring of support from the community and churches.  If you want to get involved or give to Epworth during this special season, we have a few special instructions to help you participate!


Other Current Needs

Epworth stewards its resources very carefully and keeps a close eye on resident needs and existing inventory on campus.  As specific items are needed, we update the below list.  If you choose to give specific gifts, please check often as children’s needs change.  When possible, a sample link is provided for you to either buy online and ship to Epworth or to help you find a similar item at your retailer of choice. All items must be new, used items will not be accepted. Volunteer to host an Epworth Collection Drive within your school, church, or business. Contact us at lfusco@epworthsc.org or (803) 256-7394.



Clothing Essentials:  These particular items serve the purpose of providing children with the essentials when they first arrive until we can take them shopping the next day.  The shopping for new clothes builds self-confidence in the children and serves as a trust-building activity with cottage staff.  All clothing items must be new, with tags/original packing.  Sample links have been provided to illustrate needs and/or to allow you to order online.
