Wishing Tree to benefit local NMB elementary school children/Myrtle Beach Manor: Each year the Caring Council collects gifts to give to children in need from three of our local elementary schools. We will be doing this virtually again this year, as we have done the past three years. In addition, as with last year, we will be adding some names of residents from Myrtle Beach Manor, an assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing facility. Sometimes these residents feel forgotten, and we welcome the opportunity to help make their holiday a little brighter. The dates for the Wishing Tree to be determined (November/December timeframe). A separate e-mail will be sent soon with additional information. For questions or comments, please contact the Wishing Tree Chairperson: Eileen Roddy (

Annual Christmas Dinner: Mid-December. We will once again be collecting individually wrapped desserts for the Annual Christmas Dinner. The organization hopes to serve over 14,000 meals to those in need of a good meal. For questions or comments, please contact the Christmas Dinner Chairperson: Stephanie Hudson (
