Welcome to Kiawah Women’s Foundation
Backpack Buddies Project
The Kiawah Women’s Foundation (KWF) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organized exclusively for charitable purposes. It was started in 2012 by Terry Weaver and Theresa Widuch. The mission of the Kiawah Women’s Foundation is to provide for children in underserved communities in the Low Country of South Carolina, specifically John’s and Wadmalaw Islands. KWF is supported by the hard work of many volunteers with our finances solely dedicated to projects providing nourishment for food insecure children. During the school year, our primary weekly outreach program is a weekend backpack food program, called Backpack Buddies. Working with school officials, the Backpack Buddies program makes available weekend meals with snacks to these children.
