SC Ports Gives $2,000 to Angel Oak Campaign; Additional $2,000 for Lowcountry Conservation Initiative

DSCN2006The South Carolina Ports Authority has awarded $4,000 to the Lowcountry Open Land Trust (LOLT) as part of its Community Giving program.

LOLT received a $2,000 award to support the Lowcountry Conservation Initiative and another $2,000 award to support The Angel Oak Preserve. The funds for the initiative will be used to expand land protections in Lowcountry watersheds, while the Angel Oak Preserve award will go toward purchasing the 17-acre site.

“We are grateful to the South Carolina Ports Authority for their support of the The Angel Oak Preserve and the Lowcountry Conservation Initiative,” said Elizabeth Hagood, executive director for Lowcountry Open Land Trust. “Their support will allow the land trust to continue to protect the irreplaceable and critically important lands of the Lowcountry.”

The Community Giving program rewards nonprofits that impact maritime commerce, economic development, environmental awareness or community outreach, and this year’s winners are engaged in projects to protect Lowcountry habitats, engage at-risk students and support the arts in Charleston.

“Our mission at the port goes beyond driving commerce and economic development for the state of South Carolina,” said South Carolina Ports Authority President and CEO Jim Newsome. “These and many other organizations are yielding great results in our community, and our Community Giving program gives us the opportunity to partner with outstanding nonprofits that work daily to better the environment, economy and society.”
