Neighborhood Outreach Connection (NOC) hosted a Community Social Event on July 6th, from 3-6 pm at Bluffton House. The event, which was attended by at least 100 adults and children, was well received by the community.
There were activities for toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children, including building blocks, play dough, coloring activities, and two waterslides.
NOC handed out WE READ bags, supplied by the Beaufort County Public Library, to promote literacy among children and families. Children also participated in a poster contest, which was very exciting. Each child made a poster about why they love NOC, and the whole community cast votes on the best poster. The children’s’ posters exposed the community to NOC and the work we are doing at Bluffton House.
Crosspoint Church of Bluffton helped the NOC sponsor this community event by donating popcorn and snow cones to keep everyone cool.
Crosspoint volunteers served over 400 snow cones and more than 300 bags of popcorn to children and adults. The NOC and Crosspoint partnered on this event to give the community a day filled with education, fun, tasty treats, and an awareness of NOC’s programs.
