Community Impact & News

Advoco is an enterprise asset management solutions company headquartered here in Greenville. Each year, the company hosts a conference during which about 2,000 meals are served to attendees. As the conference was canceled this year, Advoco used the existing funds to partner with Table 301 + other organizations in the community to provide thousands of boxed meals to workers at Prisma Health and St. Francis, as well as those at Tower East, United Ministries, and Project Host.

Thank you for providing lunch to our staff at The Blood Connection! We are truly humbled by your thoughtfullness. Please extend our thanks to the catering team at Table 301. Everything was delish :) Again, thank you.

Regards, Raegan Geyer

Today, I’d like to share some info on a partnership that we’ve been lucky to participate in with several other local businesses called “Connect for Good”. It started with an idea pitched to me by Marty Osborn of Advoco. The idea was to get meals and meal kits to be made at home to those with food needs, those struggling, and to first responders. Three weeks into the program, we have prepared and helped to distribute 2450 meals to the following locations; Towers East, United Ministries, Project Host, Trinity Lutheran backpack buddies, Prisma Healthcare and St. Francis Healthcare workers. These smiles are why we all do the things we do.

I wanted to write to say a huge thanks to your church for the snack bags you have provided for the families we serve during the pandemic. We have had the privilege of passing them out to so many mothers who have expressed their gratitude for the food, but more importantly for the general support and love that it provides! It is a gift for us to pass along your generosity to families in our community who are especially vulnerable during this time. Thank you so much for the work you are doing in Greenville! We are so grateful for our partnership.


Sincerely, Logan Chandler 

On behalf of the Columbia VA Health Care System patients and staff, we would like to extend our appreciation to you for your donation of boxed meals provided for Veterans. 

It is through the efforts of community partners like you that allow us to continue the quality care and services that we seek to provide our deserving Veterans. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

Original goal of sharing 2,000 meals was met, but we didn’t stop there!

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.

The world looks a lot different than it did last year.
