The Mother's Day Offering - Support Presbyterian Communities

Saxe Gotha is proud to partner with Presbyterian Communities of South Carolina.

The Mother’s Day Offering is a vital element of this partnership. Since the first Mother’s Day Offering in 1954, churches across South Carolina have given generosity, enabling Presbyterian Communities to provide care for residents who, through no fault of their own, have outlived their life’s savings. This mission, established nearly 65 years ago, required tremendous faith, courage and vision. Saxe Gotha is proud to be a part of this legacy.

Give online to the Mother's Day Offering.

In Honor of Mother's Day

We will have a beautiful photo booth opportunity for you available this Sunday.

Be sure to take pictures with your family and post them on social media,
