Spruill Avenue was rocking September 15th, as we celebrated Neighbors Together’s 39th birthday! Live music from the Tapedecks set the background for beautiful evening at Firefly Disillery. The food trucks at our Birthday Bash were amazing! They included: The Pita Stroller, Tamashi, Co Hog and Fed Up. More than 175 people came out to eat, dance, play cornhole, take a chance in our raffles and just enjoy each other’s company. Thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket to help support our mission as we continue to move forward bringing Dignity and Hope to the Lowcountry.
“Thanks for supporting our Birthday Bash Food Truck Roundup! I could not be more grateful for all who came out last night, and for all who couldn’t come but sent a donation, because you are the reason we are moving forward. The energy of the crowd was palpable as we heard from our neighbors whose lives have been transformed and as we celebrated what’s next for our mission,” said Neighbors Together Executive Director Rev. Kara Stewart. “Thank you to our business sponsors whose partnership made last night possible, and thank you to all the fantastic food truck teams and the Tapedecks and to Firefly Distillery for giving us a night to remember.”
Neighbors Together first began as Lutheran Social Services of the Greater Charleston Area, Inc. (LSS) on September 18, 1983. It was started as a humble soup kitchen and clothes closet by several congregations to respond to the the needs of their neighbors. In 1991, we became Tricounty Family Ministries with expanded services to make an even bigger impact. In 2021, we became Neighbors Together to reflect the transformation we have seen when people come together to help each other. After all, we are neighbors together. Our decades-long legacy has only been possible thanks to support from neighbors like you.
