This Little Light
What better way to understand what CommUnity means to our host community of Hilton Head Island than to invite a 40-year veteran observer to share his thoughts relative to the work of the local nonprofit community?
Nonprofit organizations aim to work with the rich, the poor, people of all colors, and of all political and religious affiliations without distinction. We aim to address the needs of the community as a whole, and as such our leaders are an integral part of solving problems and weaving together the fabric of our communities.
Mr. Lauderdale, who will also join us for Sunday’s Gullah Experience, will share the story of one such leader and how one tiny woman showed a full community what it had to share – and why.
Using the story of Charlotte Heinrichs, founder of Deep Well Project – whose work continues today and is about Islanders helping Islanders, and the 1970’s battle against the surprising effects of poverty on Hilton Head Island, David will close out the Summit, inspiring us all to return home ready to do more together.
Plenary Welcome: Jessica Munday, President, TRIO
