South Carolina Attorney George Sink knows what it means to serve and sacrifice. As a former Marine Corps Captain, Mr. Sink served two tours in Vietnam. While he went on to open his own law firm – George Sink P.A. Injury Lawyers – many of his fellow veterans struggled to make the transition back into civilian life.
A great deal of these Vietnam veterans – as well as thousands of others who followed them – found few resources and little help after fighting for our country. In turn, many became homeless. As an advocate for injured victims and disabled individuals and veterans, Mr. Sink recently came to the aid of these vets and others in need by making a donation to the Capital Campaign at Crisis Ministries.
Crisis Ministries is a non-profit organization and the largest homeless service provider in South Carolina. Mr. Sink’s generous $1,000 donation will be used to help construct Charleston’s new homeless shelter, a place where individuals and families in need can find food, refuge, and hope. The shelter is open to veterans and individuals from all walks of life and construction is expected to be completed this summer.
The new homeless shelter is much more than four walls and a roof. It is a refuge for those who have few places or people to turn to, as well as a comprehensive resource for helping them find support and stability. Crisis Ministries offers various programs and services to residents of the shelter, including case management, health care, veteran services, and legal and employment services. All of these programs are designed to provide the tools needed to end homelessness and hunger – one person at a time, one family at a time.
Thanks to Mr. Sink’s generosity and compassion, Crisis Ministries will have additional resources when building Charleston’s new homeless shelter and soup kitchen. Mr. Sink’s passion for helping others has fueled his continued efforts to support our local community, and has been a driving force behind our firm’s continued success in personal injury, Social Security disability, workers’ compensation, and Veterans disability law.
