Giving Back This Thanksgiving

It’s official -the holidays are here!  As we approach the season this year, especially this week of Thanksgiving, we’d like to pause to say how truly thankful we are for all that we have.  It is an incredible blessing to live in this amazing city and work with the BEST clients, subcontractors, and suppliers around.  And it is a privilege to be surrounded by this talented, top-notch team here at Structures.  We have much to be thankful for!

In that spirit of gratitude, the Structure team decided to give a little something back to our community this season.  Led and hosted by Designer Kathryn Elliott, we pooled some resources and spent Saturday afternoon together assembling care packages for One80 Place, a local non-profit organization.  One80 Place serves the Charleston community by providing shelter and food as well as health care, education, legal, and counseling services to help end homelessness.  They have two facilities, one in downtown Charleston and one in Summerville, and they provide shelter each night for approximately 155 people.

Seeing the quality services and impact One80 Place has in our community, we jumped at the chance to help out!  The whole Structures family – including spouses and little ones – gathered to assemble bags filled with a few basic essentials that we’ll deliver to One80 Place.  They will then be distributed to men and women who stay in their shelters. 


We had a great time serving together, and we are grateful for an opportunity to help our community in this small way.  We would encourage you to check out One80 Place if you are interested in making donations or volunteering!
