A nonprofit collaboration of more than 150 physician spouses, the Charleston County Medical Society Alliance (CCMSA) works to improve Charleston’s quality of life, empowering the health and well being of its citizens and building stronger communities. CCMSA reaches thousands of lives each year through health education, legislative advocacy, fundraising and the administration of community grants and scholarships.
Members rallied on Saturday, October 6th in a unified effort to end childhood hunger. Energized and eager to support the cause, Alliance members assembled more than 1,000 bags of healthy food for the Lowcountry Food Bank's BackPack Buddies program.

The Alliance is proud to offer members two additional opportunities for hands-on charitable work, both of which drive home the year’s focus on childhood hunger and nutrition.
Join Daniel Island fourth graders for an eye-opening hour of fascinating health facts and discoveries at the CCMSA “Commit to Be Fit” Health Fair. We need 10-12 volunteers to help oversee nine interactive learning stations that promote healthier lifestyle choices and highlight “Eat Smart, Move More.”

Join CCMSA for our second volunteer opportunity at the Lowcountry Food Bank as we help to provide children who are at risk for weekend hunger with nutritious food to sustain them through the weekend. Chronic food insecurity presents a serious threat to disadvantaged children. Backpack Buddies helps by nourishing these children when they are not in school, which greatly improves their ability to thrive in school and beyond.
The Lowcountry Food Bank’s programs represent a significant stride in the road to alleviating childhood hunger across the Lowcountry. This event is a wonderful opportunity to get involved and support this invaluable organization’s work!
In addition to these volunteer opportunities, we hope that you will support CCMSA at the following upcoming events.
We are pleased to donate $500 to the AMA Foundation in honor of all Charleston-area doctors. Celebrate the physicians in your life by acknowledging all that they do for us each and every day, and most importantly, reach out to them on March 30th.
