Liberating Lives collecting spare change from community to help raise funds for academy


Liberating Lives is holding an ongoing fundraiser to raise funds to build their academy for formerly incarcerated women in the Lowcountry. The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is asking that people donate their spare change, dimes, nickels, quarters, pennies, to assist them in reaching their goal.

The fundraiser is being run now through May 18, 2019. The Liberating Lives Academy will be a residential training academy for formerly incarcerated in the Tri-County area. With this academy, they plan to support former female inmates to successfully overcome reintegration challenges associated with assimilation into society, and reduce recidivism.

The Liberating Lives Academy curriculum will provide Biblical principles, career development training to enhance the job search process, interviewing, resume creation, dining etiquette, internships, life coaching, budgeting, parenting, healthcare, and continuing education to support personal and professional development.

The fundraiser is open to any and all members of the community interested in supporting our cause. Donations can be dropped off to Exquisite Enterprises Inc., 5524 Dutton Avenue, Suite B3, North Charleston, SC 29406. Anyone interested in making any other donations can visit the organization’s website at All donations made are tax deductible.
