SUPPORTING THE ARK OF SC
The ARK of SC (Alzheimer’s Family Support Services) assists families of the Lowcountry who are living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other memory disorders. The ARK began as a ministry of St. Luke’s in 1996, and has now moved to a building of its own at 502 West 5th North Street in Summerville. They hold a social group respite program for Alzheimer’s patients, monthly support groups for families of Alzheimer’s patients, caregiver consultation and education programs, Law Enforcement and First Responder training for Alzheimer’s patients, and they reach out through the NOAH project, assisting rural towns in developing Alzheimer’s support services. During February, St. Luke’s Second Mile of Giving goes to support the ARK as they continue to help families in the area. Help us support this important ministry that began here at St. Luke’s 23 years ago.

St. Luke’s Women of the ELCA are joining in the battle to end human trafficking. Throughout the month of February, we are collecting items that will be put in backpacks for girls who are rescued from sex trafficking in our state. These backpacks help the girls as they are rescued with literally nothing but the clothes on their backs! We are in need of shampoo, body wash, toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorant (no roll-ons), towels, hair brushes/combs, re-fillable water bottles, solid color t-shirt (no logos), socks, athletic pants, and bibles.
