Make an Assist for Outdoor Basketball Courts

Make an Assist for Outdoor Basketball Courts in Carolina Park

The Mount Pleasant Youth Council is comprised of local area high school students tasked with the mission to, “Empower youth through providing the opportunity to serve, develop leadership skills, and grow to become engaged and responsible citizens.”

The 2021 –2022 Youth Council identified the need for additional outdoor public basketball courts for recreation and leisure. Many residents became accustomed to and now enjoy playing outside as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. While a small number of outdoor courts currently exist, the demand for them is so high that it is difficult for teens and children to secure playing time on the courts. The Town of Mount Pleasant currently has two outdoor basketball courts included in the master plan for the Carolina Park Recreation Complex but lacks the necessary funds to construct these courts. The Youth Council has dedicated their session to raising the $150,000 necessary to construct both courts and install required lighting and fencing. The two courts will also be striped for four pickleball courts.

Members of the Mount Pleasant Youth Council are asking for your help in raising these funds. Please consider donating today! All donations are tax exempt.

Wayne Magwood Fishermen's Memorial Statue

The Wayne Magwood Fishermen's Memorial Statue Donation Program

Welcome to the Wayne Magwood Fishermen’s Memorial Statue Donation Page. The Fishermen’s Memorial Statue will be dedicated to preserving the history and honoring the rich maritime heritage of fishermen, past and present, who have called Mount Pleasant home. The recent and untimely passing of Captain Wayne Magwood has brought forth the need to commemorate and celebrate the shrimping lifestyle and culture that is an integral part of the fabric of Mount Pleasant. Your donation will not only help recognize the investment, dedication and sacrifices the shrimping fleet has made to preserve a culture at the heart of Mount Pleasant, but it will recognize an iconic shrimping family synonymous with Shem Creek.

Captain Wayne Magwood and his father Captain Clarence Magwood, Jr.  fished the Lowcountry waters for over 100 years. Their lifetime dedication to the community they served brought them and the many people they helped and mentored much joy. Captain Wayne Magwood’s daughters Tressy Magwood Mellichamp, Jennifer Magwood Ray, Tara Magwood and Melissa Magwood, in partnership with the Town of Mount Pleasant, are raising funds to erect a statue in the likeness of Captain Wayne Magwood to be housed on the Magwood Boardwalk on Shem Creek to honor their father and the local maritime industry. 

Your donation to the Fishermen’s Memorial Statue at the Shem Creek Pedestrian Bridge is much appreciated and will help recognize the Mount Pleasant fishing fleet and preserve its rich maritime history. All donations are tax deductible. 

Donations may be submitted through the Town's GoFundMe page.
