Providing Livable Housing in the Hilton Head Island Community
The Deep Well Project was founded in 1973, digging wells to provide clean, safe water for the Hilton Head Island community. Since then, it has been the source of emergency assistance to the local community and is supported by individuals, businesses, religious institutions, foundations, clubs, schools and various other organizations.
The Sunset Rentals team is proud to be supporting The Deep Well Project’s Livable Housing Division – a non-profit fund of Collins Group Realty. This initiative focuses on making repairs to owner-occupied homes with critical needs for the purpose of keeping families safe.
The average cost of each project is $870
Some repairs are much more expensive, like replacing a roof or drilling for a new well, but some are simple projects with labor provided by volunteers.
110 Homes are repaired each year
On average, 385 people are helped annually.
$40,000 is the fundraising goal of the Community Results Project for 2021
These funds will provide a “turbo-booster” to the existing Livable Housing project. The funds would not only purchase supplies, such as lumber, nails, and saw blades, but also helps with labor for projects not appropriate for volunteers.
At Sunset Rentals, we love our Hilton Head Island community and the Deep Well Project both serves and reflects the caring community in which we live. Click here to learn more about the organization and how to get involved.
