Hammond invites nominations for Angels
South Carolina Secretary of State Mark Hammond announced that his office will accept nominations of charitable organizations for this year’s Angel awards.
Every year, the Secretary of State honors several charitable organizations as “Angels.” Specifically, the Secretary of State considers organizations which use at least 80 percent of their contributions for charitable services, have been in existence for three years or more, make good use of volunteer assistance, and do not rely heavily on government grants or grants from other organizations.
