Colliers and LCK offices across South Carolina participated in a virtual “Together We Can” United Way campaign to raise dollars and collect canned goods for local communities
Charleston/Columbia/Greenville/Spartanburg, October 30, 2020 – Colliers International | South Carolina and LCK staff and associates have pledged $82,298 in contributions to Trident United Way, United Way of the Midlands, United Way of Greenville County and United Way of the Piedmont. The pledges reflect a per capita contribution of $560.
This year, Colliers and LCK introduced “Together We Can,” a giving campaign aimed at helping those most affected by COVID-19 in a safe and socially distanced way. In addition to dollars raised, the company’s employees collected 3,147 canned and non-perishable foods for local food banks: Lowcountry Food Bank in Charleston, Harvest Hope Food Bank in Columbia, Salvation Army in Greenville and H.O.P.E. Soup Kitchen in Spartanburg.
While each of the company’s office locations have run corporate campaigns in previous years, this is the second year of synchronizing volunteer efforts and donations for the United Way. The collective, statewide effort aids organizations located in the same markets as Colliers’ and LCK’s four South Carolina offices.
“At Colliers and LCK, we are deeply committed to our communities,” said John Folsom, President and CEO of Colliers International | South Carolina. “We show compassion for those in need and we value and respect each other’s differences and individuality. In line with our core value of “Community,” we encourage all our staff to give back what they are able, whether that be with their money or their time. United Way is a longstanding, trusted community partner, and together, we are making a difference. Our generous employees are making a real impact in the lives of our friends and neighbors.”
The two-week giving campaign was kicked-off by a virtual meeting of the four offices and the release of a video produced in-house that features Colliers and LCK staff. The video showcases the company’s collaboration, creativity and commitment to serving local communities with joy and good spirits: https://vimeo.com/467791195.
