The Chapin Memorial Library is a historic resource for the literary and intellectual concerns for the local citizens and Myrtle Beach visitors. The first x-ray machine for the publicly supported Ocean View Hospital was purchased by The Chapin Foundation. (This hospital was replaced by Grand Strand Hospital). Many local churches have been given assistance with building construction, capital improvements and their community programs.
Mr. Chapin was a visionary in planning for the future of a vibrant life in Myrtle Beach. His passion for serving all the citizens in Myrtle Beach is evident in the areas of focus he provided for including, YMCA, literary enrichment, health and wellness and charitable work. This work began modestly, but has blossomed to enrich the lives of untold citizens and visitors enjoying this beautiful location.
