South Carolina

People in South Carolina care about kids here in the United States and around the world. Save the Children has worked in South Carolina since 2003 and currently partners with 15 schools in five counties to deliver programs to more than 5,500 children.

Last year, we worked closely with Save the Children to include funding for Save the Children’s early learning programs in the South Carolina state budget. This funding will allow Save the Children to continue to provide critical educational programs to thousands of children across the state.

From expanding preschool for kids in the U.S. to ensuring mothers and children survive and thrive around the world, South Carolina’s advocates are the voice for children.

There are countless ways you can raise your voice for kids! Our activists post information and actions to their social media pages, staff booths at community events, meet with elected officials and even ask presidential candidates questions about how they would work to help children.

Joining our work will positively impact the lives of kids in South Carolina and beyond.

Signature delivery to Sen. Graham: Cosponsor the Reach Act!

Senator Lindsey Graham’s Columbia Office (map) December 4 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm UTC-5

Over the past few months our volunteers have collected hundreds of signatures from South Carolinians urging Senator Graham to add his name as a cosponsor to the Reach Every Mother and Child Act, which aims to end preventable deaths of mothers and children around the world.

On Monday, December 4 at 12:00pm, we’ll be delivering the signatures to Senator Graham’s office in Columbia and we’d like you to join us! Deliveries are quick, easy and effective. When volunteers drop off signatures in person, it shows the office that this issue has lots of support. Office staff recognize our red shirts and get familiar with the issue and our volunteers – and it only takes about five minutes of your time.

Let us know you’re coming!
