Dukes Palmetto House

Harold Dukes and the Dukes family have a tradition of helping childrens charities.  As friend to our abused, neglected, and abandoned children, Harold and his family have pledged financial support for A Kid’s Place and have earned the right to name one of the five residential homes as the “Dukes Palmetto House”.  This name was selected to reflect the community in which the Dukes live and to have a pleasant association for the children who will live there.  The children often associate themselves with the house in which they reside.  We want to thank Mr. & Mrs. Dukes for their unconditional support and generosity.

Harold T. Dukes is the founder of Children‘s Cancer Cooperative, Inc. He and his wife Rosie have four children and eight grandchildren. Harold and his family live on a farm in rural Charleston County in South Carolina. Harold feels like God has blessed him his entire life, not only financially but also with his health and the health of his wife, children, and grandchildren.

Because of God’s abundant blessings, Harold believes that he should share these gifts with others. Harold’s desire and wishes are to give to others as God has given to him.

My Philosophy - Dottie Berger MacKinnon

"Our kids have had a rough time before they came to us, and chances are they will have a rough time after they leave -  maybe for a long time.  Somewhere down the road they are going to remember that there was a period in their lives when life was good, when people cared, and there were loving people in this world who made them feel special - because they are.  That's A Kid's Place.  We all do our little part to make these children feel loved."
