In participation with their back-to-school program, Beach Properties is donating $150 in snacks to the Neighborhood Outreach Connection to assist with the not-for-profit's mission in encouraging young students to excel in both the classroom and the community. Beach Properties feels the organization’s after-school tutoring and computer-based learning programs are valuable to the children of the local community, and fits within the company’s charitable giving mission.

“Neighborhood Outreach Connection is an amazing example of how people can have a positive impact right in their own backyard” stated Meg Park, Sales & Marketing Manager of Beach Properties of Hilton Head. “Their dedication to supporting local children and families is inspiring, and we are proud to continue to contribute to their efforts.”

The after-school tutoring and computer-based learning programs run by the Neighborhood Outreach Connection provide a safe place for school-aged children to receive additional assistance on homework, as well as a constructive place to go after school. Located within local, low-income public housing communities around Beaufort County, this program is within walking distance from many of the participants’ homes, and their facilities are renovated by local residents to accommodate Virtual Learning Centers equipped with computers and Internet access. Area schools refer students who are struggling academically, and these students are tutored by local teachers 4 days per week, 11/2 hours a day.
