In late 2009 an article appeared in the Island Packet which caught the attention of the Social Action Committee of Congregation Beth Yam on Hilton Head Island.
The article dealt with the homeless and hungry in Beaufort County and specifically on Hilton Head Island.
Members of the committee felt strongly that they needed and wanted to know more about people living in our community going without food and or shelter.
The committee asked congregation member Twyla Sable to chair a committee to investigate the issue.
Her response: “This is a problem that should be presented not just to our congregation but to the entire community. We need to involve as many people as possible.”
