HELPING TO FIGHT SENIOR HUNGER

October 31st, 2019 by

Charleston networking group continues to fight senior hunger and isolation in the Lowcountry
The Lowcountry Senior Network (LSN) is proud to host the 4th Annual Holiday Harvest Gala to support the Meals on Wheels of Charleston on December 5, 2019 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm in the Cooper River Room at Mt. Pleasant’s Memorial Waterfront Park.
Over the last three years, the Holiday Harvest Gala has raised nearly $43,000, allowing the program to begin daily meal delivery services to the nearly 200 seniors who are added to the waiting list each year in Charleston. This fundraising event was conceived by members of LSN – the Lowcountry’s premier networking organization committed to providing quality services to seniors, caregivers, and adult children – as a response to the staggering number of individuals in the area that on the wait lists to receive Meals on Wheels services due to lack of funds.
Meals on Wheels of Charleston, a Charleston Area Senior Citizens (CASC) program, not only provides a nutritious meal, but also a friendly visit and a safety check that helps keep over 650 seniors living independently in their own homes from the Cooper River to the Edisto. Funds raised by the gala directly allow the program to reach hundreds more who are currently waiting to receive services.
Event tickets are intentionally priced at $55, which allows one couple ($110) to feed a Meals on Wheels client for an entire month. Your ticket includes live music from Not So Serious, open bar, a raffle ticket to enter to win from an assortment of custom gift baskets, silent auction items, and the breathtaking views of the Cooper River Bridge from the venue. Since the heart of this fundraiser is centered around feeding people, LSN has once again teamed up with the outstanding culinary team from Franke at Seaside to provide an unforgettable menu for our guests. They will of course feature the crowd favorite Aged Cheddar Mac and Cheese Bar stocked with pulled pork, andouille sausage, butter poached obster, roasted chicken, slab bacon, tomatoes, green onions, local mushrooms, and caramelized onions. There are always new surprises with a food station to fit anyone’s taste, passed hors d’oeuvres, hand crafted signature cocktails, and beautiful dessert display.

LSN is honored to collaborate with the following event sponsors: All About Seniors, Care for Life, MUSC Center on Aging, Franke at Seaside, BrightStar Home Care, Stephen Martindale with Mutual of Omaha, Mount Pleasant Gardens Alzheimer’s Special Care Center, Sandpiper Premier Senior Living, HouseCalls-MD, Daniel Pointe Retirement Community, Pruitt Healthcare of Moncks Corner, Always Best Care, Ashley Gardens Assisted Living and Memory Care, Home Care Assistance, Palmetto Lowcountry Behavioral Health, Overture Daniel Island, Winyah Pharmacy, and Lowcountry Companions.
Tickets can be purchase in advance at www.lowcountrysn.com or at the door.

AVOIDING SIMPLE CHRISTMAS SHIPPING MISTAKES

December 16th, 2018 by

We’re all busy during the holidays. In the rush of buying presents and making your family’s plans, it’s not hard to make some mistakes that can cause issues with your Christmas shipping. Here at Pak Mail, this is our 30th Christmas this year! We know how to get your shipping done right and we know the issues that must be avoided to get gifts to their destination on time. Here’s a few tips to help you avoid shipping delays and mishaps.
• Check your recipient’s address before shipping. If you’re sending to an apartment, see if they have a doorman to receive packages. Carriers may not leave packages at certain apartments, so you may want to send to their business address or we can help arrange pickup at a carrier location close to their address.
• Make sure boxes are taped well and labels are secure. Scotch tape will not hold up during transit.
• Use a private carrier like FedEx, UPS or DHL to insure you have a reliable tracking number.
• Use Pak Mail to receive automatic email tracking updates and keep a close eye on your gifts during transit.
• Weather delays happen, shipping ahead of time can assure packages arrive before Christmas.

HOW TO HANDLE DELIVERY ISSUES

 Most of the time packages arrive without any issues, when you do encounter a problem it’s important to get it fixed as soon as possible to insure your Christmas gifts are on time. FedEx and UPS will give you a chance to correct addresses and add apartment numbers over the phone. They could also arrange pickup at one of the local offices close to your recipient’s address.With the postal service you may have to attempt to intercept the package and have it picked up at the post office. Many times it will be immediately processed for return to sender which may take a week or more. Pak Mail Mount Pleasant keeps a close eye on all of your packages we ship and we’re happy to help our customers avoid delivery issues as well as fix them. Some things you should do to assure a smooth and timely delivery.

  • Verify your recipient’s address and have their phone number on the label.
  • Sign up for Pak Mail’s email tracking updates to stay up to date on your packages delivery status.
  • Use a private carrier like FedEx or UPS to assure you have the best up to date tracking.
  • If your recipient lives in an apartment try sending to their business address or ask us about forwarding your package to a carrier office closest to your recipient.

PACKING FRAGILE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS FOR SHIPPING

December 14th, 2018 by

Whether it’s a new laptop or an old glass Christmas ornament, Pak Mail is happy to help you pack your fragile and valuable Christmas presents. Higher volume on delivery trucks means more weight and rougher rides for gifts during the holidays. If you have fragile items to ship let us help you and feel content knowing your loved ones gifts were packed and shipped by professionals. If you’d prefer to pack your items before bringing them in for shipping here’s a few tips.
1. Make sure there’s plenty of space for packing material when picking a box. Fragile items should have a minimum of two inches on each side and may require more if they’re made of glass or ceramic. Most breakables should be double boxed, the idea is to pack well enough for a six foot drop from the back of a carrier’s truck.
2. Use sturdy boxes. It’s good to recycle those old Amazon boxes but if they’re in poor condition it could mean trouble during transit. Pak Mail has a wide range of high quality corrugated boxes to choose from.
3. Shipping with FedEx or UPS can mean a faster transit time and less handling.
4. Fragile stickers do not replace good packing!
5. Use good packing tape to seal up boxes and labels. Scotch or duct tape won’t cut it!

AVOIDING PORCH PIRATES

 About 26 million Americans or roughly eight percent of the population has had a package stolen from their porch, it’s important to take the proper steps to make sure your Christmas gifts are safe and you are protected. When you ship your Christmas presents try to make sure your recipient will be home on the day your packages are estimated to arrive. If your recipient lives in an apartment complex, ask if they have a doorman that receives packages. FedEx and UPS will often collect a signature from the doorman or someone at the apartment office upon delivery. Sending packages to a business address is one of the easiest ways to assure your packages are handed to someone at the delivery address and not left outside. Not only will you receive a free signature on commercial deliveries, many times you will get a small discount on your shipping. Pak Mail offers insurance, email tracking updates and options for getting packages picked up at carrier office locations close to your recipient’s address to help our customers assure smooth delivery.Come in with your Christmas presents and let us help you make your holiday shipping easier than your holiday shopping!
