BIRDIES FOR CHARITY

If you would like to contribute to our effort one of our largest donation drives evolves around the Birdies for Charity, a program operated by the Heritage Classic Foundation. The Heritage Classic Foundation allows local charities to collect pledges for the number of birdies (one under par) which might be scored in the Verizon Heritage golf tournament held each spring on Hilton Head Island. The local Rotary Club-Sunset chapter then calculates your pledge amount with the number of birdies that were scored in four days of the tournament and sends you a bill stating the amount you owe after the golf tournament is over.

So! How much does it cost? Click here to find out more!


VOLUNTEER TO BE A LOCAL HOST FAMILY

Thank you for inquiring about volunteer possibilities. The application and admission process to qualify for a Hilton Head Hero vacation is extensive and thorough. As a part of the process referrals are received, applications reviewed, medical information checked with the child's doctors and release forms processed. This admission process ensures the families arriving know about our program and what to expect on their vacation. The Hero families are then assigned to a Host family whose most important contributions are communicating with the family before their arrival, welcoming them when they arrive and helping them feel comfortable in our Heroes house in Sea Pines.

You are the members of the Heroes team who get to meet the families and interact with them on a personal basis. Social Care Workers and Doctors tell us the anticipation of a planned vacation sometimes makes the treatment schedule seem quicker for a Hero child.

The Hero child will have completed a questionnaire before their arrival about their favorite activities - this will be supplied to you to help you better learn about the arriving child and family.

There is no financial responsibility assigned to a volunteer Host family. All meals and activities are provided through a gift certificate program. These certificates are given to the family by you when they arrive.

Some families choose to just spend their days being together, walking on the beach, playing in the surf and riding bikes. Some families may be very independent, others more dependent - it is up to you to determine just how much interaction a family might need from you.

The Board of Hilton Head Heroes appreciates the time and effort hosting a family involves. It is the kind and giving spirit of our community that has made our program such a success. As you will soon find out, the children and their families are so appreciative of their time away from medical intervention and treatment. It can be a very rewarding experience and a cherished memory, one that encourages our Hosts to volunteer year after year.
