All of us were winners at a recent SCC Chamber Expo held Nov. 30th ! Mary Mumma shared a 50-50 raffle this afternoon with Campaign Against Human Trafficking -SouthShore, Inc. Each received $50! CAHT will add their share to their sponsors. These funds go to rehab centers, safe homes, education services and victim supplies throughout the tri-county area.

Celebrating Our Generous Donors of 2017
Thanks to all of you who have generously made donations to CAHT – SouthShore. Frequently, when we are out fundraising or speaking to organizations, kind folks reach into their pockets and give us a dollar or five or twenty. Every donation helps! If you’d like to donate, visit: www.sccblueheart.org/donate.
We pay no salaries at all to our fantastic board members and have only minimal expenses for supplies such as cards, letterhead, and postage. Other than approximately $3,000 we spent in 2015 on display materials, which we now use over and over at events, the majority of our contributions go toward Victim Services. We prepare backpacks full of clothing and personal items for the police and FBI to use when they rescue youngsters, plus much of our money goes to the various area rescue shelters where the children are housed when the police pick them up. Because of the amount of therapy and treatment these youngsters need, they may stay in a shelter home for many months or even 1-2 years. These shelters are regulated by the State and have very high overhead – our donations help them to stay open and provide necessary supplies and/or repairs.
