Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Golden Corner Chapter aims to provide services for as many disabled and aging veterans in our community as possible. We want them to feel that their community cares about their safety, dignity and peace of mind through the services that our charity provides. We endeavor to show veterans in our communities that they have not been left behind or forgotten and that the sacrifices they made for our country are acknowledged and appreciated.

Purple Heart Homes Golden Corner Chapter is always looking for more ways to increase our volunteer base and raise funds through donations, fundraising events and corporate sponsors from within our communities and across the country. This also includes donations of items such as tools, materials and in- kind donations from licensed contractors and businesses. We often cooperate with other volunteer organizations and veteran charities to pool resources. Golden Corner Chapter attends events with other charitable organizations to reach out to veterans in the community to increase awareness of our program and the types of services we provide.

Many of the volunteers with Purple Heart Homes Golden Corner Chapter are veterans themselves or family members of veterans. Our board is comprised of people who live and work in the community. Many of us bring useful skills to the organization and a willingness to work together to help our veterans.

Our founding board member began working with Purple Heart Homes USA to form our chapter in 2013. In 2015 Purple Heart Homes Golden Corner Chapter became an official chapter in South Carolina with its’ own EIN number. We hope to reach our 100th veteran home project by the end of 2020. We have increased the amount and frequency of donations every year. With determination and hard work, expanding the number of repeat volunteers and bringing more sponsors to our program we can surpass previous years and maintain steady growth into the future.
