One organization that is near and dear to my own heart is Habitat for Humanity, and it just so happens that the local Sea Island affiliate might be one of the hottest ticket items in the US for volunteering. The affiliate is the third oldest in the world, with build sites located on James Island and Johns Island so you can volunteer for a half or full day then after lots of sweat and hard work retreat back to the beach for some R&R. Don’t have much or any build experience? That’s OK because site supervisors like Mike will show you the ropes and teach you what you need to know. What better way to interact with locals while also giving back to the community! For more info click HERE.
