Helping Hands

A Second Helping is a volunteer organization that collects our guests’ vacation groceries as they leave the island. Not only does this save you the hassle of hauling vacation food home with you, but it helps the community you love as well! A Second Helping was envisioned and launched by Bill Spier in 2005 (who retired in 2016 after many years of committed and faithful service).

Conveniently located in the Beach Mart parking lot on the right side of the Causeway coming off the bridge, volunteers with A Second Helping are awaiting departing guests in the drive-through drop-off area. The perishable and non-perishable food will be distributed to the needy in our Holden Beach area through One Can Ministries, the food pantry at Sharon United Methodist Church on Holden Beach Road. Non-food items are sent to the Brunswick Christian Recovery Center.

When is it? 

A Second Helping takes place on Saturday mornings between June 8 and September 7, 2019. Hours are 7:00 a.m. until noon.

Where is it? 

You'll find the drop-off roadside at the Beach Mart parking lot (3368 Holden Beach Rd/HB Causeway) for a quick drive-through – easy in and out!

What can be used?
