“Spring Hill High School’s 2016-2017 Leadership 2 class chose to do our year-long service project on raising human trafficking awareness. We first learned about human trafficking when one of the students in our class heard the Attorney General speak about trafficking in South Carolina at an event. We did additional research and requested a representative from Lighthouse for Life to come speak to our class.
After learning about the severity of human trafficking and hearing from L4L, we decided to raise money through a fundraiser to benefit their ministry. One of our students’ father is the regional manager at Carrabba’s and offered to help in raising money through a dinner at Spring Hill. We planned extensively for the event by advertisement. We sold tickets throughout the school with posters and throughout our community with a newspaper advertisement. We sold tickets throughout the school and community over a period of two weeks and prepared for the event by planning a layout for the cafeteria and assigning everyone a specific role to ensure the night went smoothly. We were glad that Lighthouse for Life was able to set up an information table at the dinner to answer questions and provide additional facts.
The fundraiser was successful in raising over $3000 and serving over 300 meals on January 31, 2017. After completing this project, we are more passionate about spreading awareness for human trafficking in South Carolina and plan on doing several more service projects before the school year ends.”

Please welcome Shelly Lawson as our new Administrative Assistant!
With strong family values, Shelly chose to stay at home after her son was born. She is an incredible mother for her two kids as well as the many kids she helps take care of at her church! She is organized, hard-working, efficient, and not only helps us keep up with all the daily details, but brings joy and blessing to our organization as well!
On February 14, Jen Thompson and Bob Healy had the privilege of attending the Nehemiah Project Pastors Day of Prayer at the State House sponsored by the Palmetto Family Council (Oran Smith, Erik Corcoran). While there, they were able to connect with Governor Henry McMaster, Senator Shane Massey and Representative David Weeks, Chairman of the Criminal Laws Committee. They were able to talk with them about the bill S168 which would put more pressure on the demand side of human trafficking.
On February 27, 28, and March 1, members of law enforcement, Prosecutors, Victim Advocates, first responders, and others from across the state of South Carolina, as well as other states, will be coming together for an in-depth three day training put on by Amber Alert. With this training, South Carolina will become that much more aware and unified in their efforts to eradicate human trafficking from our state!
