First Students to Start June 4

Harmony Independence Academy will welcome its first group of students very soon. Held in a house on the beautiful, safe campus of Columbia International University, the program will teach independent living skills and provide opportunities for practicing those skills in a realistic home environment with others.

But we need your help to make the Harmony house a home!

We need a variety of items - everything from a loveseat, coffee table, and bedroom furniture to cleaning supplies and kitchen utensils. A complete list of items needed can be found here. New or gently used items are greatly appreciated.

Helping is easy!

1. Use this link to indicate which items you have to donate.

2. Determine the drop off location most convenient to you. (See list below.)

3. Gather the items and alert the drop off location contact of the expected time of delivery before June 3. The sooner we can have the items dropped off, the better as we work to get the house completed for the students.

-- Irmo Area Drop Off: Katherine Andes, 107 Osborne Lane, Irmo, SC 29063. Text 803-463-7591 and leave on front porch. Please wrap in a plastic bag to protect from the weather.
