Lowcountry Orphan Relief, Inc. (LOR) is a non-profit organization that provides goods and services to children who have been abused or neglected. 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 14,000 children in the Tri-County area.
LOR uses more than 80% of all income given to them to provide for the children’s needs. Presently, community volunteers at our “Valerie Vincent” Clothes Closet 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.
Because of our rapid growth with the number of agencies and schools we serve, we find it necessary to expand our facility. On January 18th, 2013 we broke ground on a new 4000SF distribution center behind our clothing closet. Learn more and see how you can help!
