Spreading Smiles, One Meal at a Time
The Connect for Good Journey
May event was changed to virtual format, establishing Connect for Good initiative. Initial goal was set at sharing 2,000 meals.
Original goal of sharing 2,000 meals was met, but we didn’t stop there!
First 200 meals were provided to residents of Towers East.
Surpassed 10,000 meals provided to the community.
Connect for Good receives $500,000 grant from the Greenville County CARES Act.
Surpassed 20,000 meals after 31 weeks.
Each year, Advoco hosts a conference in Greenville, SC called Connect. This conference brings together the Infor EAM community to connect, learn, and grow together. Because of COVID-19, we knew that we could not have an in-person event for this year’s conference. With the move to a virtual event, the money that was usually spent on feeding attendees and staff was left on the table. And so, an idea was born: Connect for Good GVL. We partnered with local catering company Table 301 and using funds from the conference as well as partnerships with other organizations, we are providing meals to those in need in Greenville. We are excited to partner with local vendors and non-profit organizations to maximize our reach in the community. To find out more or to donate, visit connectforgoodgvl.com.
The world looks a lot different than it did last year.
