Jasmine Road Named UTO Grant Recipient
Jasmine Road, Inc. received a $40,500 grant from the United Thank Offering Board of the Episcopal Church awarded by the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina. We are so grateful!
In 2017-2018, the Episcopal Church is focused on its "Jesus Movement," which emphasizes Christ-like relationship-building among neighbors and communities. We are humbled that Jasmine Road, Inc.'s mission has been recognized as an example of Christ's presence and work in the world. The grant will assist in funding Jasmine Road, Inc.'s start-up costs, including website development, the purchase of two computers, and salaries for employees. We are infinitely grateful to Christ Church Episcopal for its help in writing and sponsoring the grant request, and we specifically thank Bishop Andrew Waldo, Reverend Deacon d'Rue Hazel, Phyllis Webb, Reverend Dr. Harrison McLeod, and Frances Poe. Christ Church Episcopal continues to be an incredible partner in helping us get the necessary funding and support to officially launch Jasmine Road, Inc.

Jasmine Road House Yard Clean-up Day
Saturday, August 26 8 am - 12 noon
Please help us turn the Jasmine Road house into a home by participating in a much-needed yard clean-up project. Most of the work will be raking, shoveling, and pruning. Many hands truly make for light work; therefore, please encourage spouses, children (at least 12 years old), and friends to join you. Please bring your rakes, electric trimmers, gloves, garbage bags, and other tools. To volunteer contact Ashley Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information with specific instructions will be sent by e-mail following sign-up.
