    September 3, 2019

    As the North American leg of the highly-successful Group Therapy Tour comes to a close in the birthplace of Hootie & the Blowfish, the GRAMMY Award-winning band are partnering with RCPEP and SC for Ed. Fans attending the Thursday, Sept. 12 show in Columbia are encouraged to bring school supplies for an on-site “fill the bus” drive, with pencils, dry erase markers, copy paper, facial tissues and bleach wipes designated by local teachers as the most-needed items. 

    Additionally, those not attending the shows in person can support each cause by: 

    • Donating at www.HootieGives.org (Type SCSCHOOLS on the giving page)
    • Mailing a check to Central Carolina Community Foundation (2142 Boyce Street, Suite 402, Columbia, SC 29201). 
    • Texting SCSCHOOLS to 44-321

    Hootie & the Blowfish, known for making charitable giving a priority throughout their career via the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation, will be matching all monetary donations made through Friday, Sept. 20 up to $20,000 per beneficiary.
