Hamburger lunches, golf tournament, a silent auction and employee pledges – just a few ways Greer Commission of Public Works employees raised more than $15,000 for this year’s United Way of Greenville County campaign.
“This year’s campaign proved that together we can do more. It was a quick month-long fundraiser but made a huge impact with the donations we raised,” said Alison Rauch, Public Information Coordinator and CPW Campaign Chair.
This year, employees raised $15,472.24 for United Way of Greenville County – a non- profit who brings people and resources together for a brighter future. Since 2011, Greer CPW has donated more than $159,200 back into the community through United Way.
“We are thankful to for the lifelong partnership with Greer CPW and the impact they are having in the community. Much of the money raised will stay in the Greer area supporting organizations like Greer Relief to help neighbors with basic needs, make sure children are better prepared for school and to set students up for post-high school success,” said Alex Burnside, Relationship Manager with United Way of Greenville County.[ATTACHED PHOTO: From L to R, Greer CPW General Manager Mike Richard, Commissioner Perry Williams, Public Information Coordinator Alison Rauch and United Way of Greenville County Relationship Manager Alex Burnside, accepting the check Monday November 26]
