Schedule your Midlands Gives donation today!

Midlands Gives brings the region together as one community, raising money and awareness for Midlands nonprofits during an annual 18-hour online giving challenge. During Midlands Gives, everyone has the opportunity to be a philanthropist as contributions of just $20 or more are amplified through sponsored prize incentives.

Your donation to FoodShare South Carolina during Midlands Gives will help us improve quality of life and reduce food insecurity in South Carolina by increasing access to fresh produce and nutrition education.

What will we do with money raised on Midlands Gives Day?

By supporting FoodShare today, you are helping to support a system that allows individuals to learn necessary skills and access the foods necessary to make a change for healthier lives.
