The organization, which was created by children from Mt. Pleasant, are collecting old and unwanted keys for their recycling and fundraising project benefiting Charleston's homeless. The keys will be "hand-designed and decorated to be worn as necklaces, key chains, backpack charms, and even used as gift tags, stocking stuffers, teacher gifts and ornaments." A donation of $5 per key is also suggested.
Key donations will continue throughout February and collection locations can be found at:
· Wonder Works toy stores (Mt. Pleasant, West Ashley and Kiawah)
· East Cooper Lock & Safe (Mt. Pleasant - Chuck Dawley)
