In 2013 Southern Accents founded a non-profit organization, SA3:23. The SA stands for Salvage Assurance and the 3:23 is based on Colossians 3:23 which is the core of our mission statement: “Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men.” Our main project for the past few years has been to play Santa for a group of around 100 underprivileged children in our community. We deliver wrapped toys, goodie bags, cookies, snacks and supplies for their Christmas party. Our budget for this project is approximately $1,500.
This is the SA teams favorite project of the year!! We pull out Frosty and Rudolph and pay a visit to the children at school. Seeing the excited reactions of the children and all their smiling faces is priceless! These are children living below poverty level and for many, this is the only gift they will receive during the holidays.
While we gladly accept donations year round, if you would like to make a donation to help provide gifts for the children this Christmas, please drop by Southern Accents any time this month. Checks should be made payable to SA3:23. All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible.
