Grants Awarded At its annual meeting in late January, the Bargain Box awarded $450,000 to 42 nonprofits in Beaufort County. Representatives are pictured below. The Bargain Box was established in 1965 by three ladies from First Presbyterian Church as a shopping option for the working residents of Hilton Head Island. By 1970, it was generating enough revenues to provide monetary support to local social agencies and charities, and it was incorporated as a stand-alone 501(c)(3) organization. The Bargain Box has continued to grow, becoming an Island institution that has returned over $13.9 million in to the community. The Bargain Box is located next door to First Presbyterian Church, 540 William Hilton Parkway. Hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Saturday.
