Save The Date- 2018 Daniel Island Spring Red Balloon Yard Sale

The Red Balloon Yard Sale is a semi-annual yard sale held twice a year.

Lowcountry Orphan Relief, Inc. 

We work directly with other non-profits, schools, foster parents, and government agencies to identify the individual needs of these and other children in severe situations. We intervene at critical junctures in the lives of these children, with products and services that provide a strong, positive impact. Since 2006, we have clothed over 22,000 children in the Tri-County area.

LOR uses more than 76% of all income given to them to provide for the children’s needs. Presently, community volunteers at our Distribution Center are collecting and shelving donations and filling orders for each child from area shelters, foster care and those removed from the custody of their parents. They receive clothing, toiletries, books and school supplies within 48 hours.

LOR has also built libraries at emergency shelters and group homes in the tri-county area and, in addition, conducts two events per year in order that the children may get out of the shelters and enjoy new surroundings.

Our Mission Statement 

The mission of Lowcountry Orphan Relief is to provide support services and aid to meet the needs of Lowcountry children identified as at-risk or suffering from abandonment, abuse and/or neglect.
