Happy New Year! We hope you all had a blessed Christmas Season! Many children were served in Beaufort County, thanks to your generous donations to Bluffton Self-Help. Each of the teachers and staff would like to thank you again for your generous gifts and treats. We are truly blessed to have such wonderful parents to support us. We look forward to all the fun and exciting things the new year brings!
