Our History

The Lake Wylie/Clover Mayday Project began as an outreach program of River Hills Community Church called Operation Mayday, to meet the needs of families in emergency situations within the Clover School District. Upon speaking with representatives from the school district, the team became aware that there was a population of homeless families with school age children that were in need of help.  Funds were raised through a golf tournament to help these families through representatives of the Clover School District.  The Lake Wylie/Clover Mayday Project became an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2012.

Today

Since then we have extended our help to homeless children within the York School District also. 

 We provide monetary assistance and gift cards for transportation, clothing, shoes, school supplies, personal hygiene products, and any other needs the school district representatives become aware of for students within the two school districts.

We also provide funding to the following nonprofits that help children within our communities: Children's Attention Home, Tender Hearts Ministry, Steppin' High, RideAbility, and Early Learning Partnership of York County.

We established a scholarship at York Tech in 2015 for students who have graduated from Clover School District that are classified as homeless by federal standards.
