We are thrilled to announce that our very own Tina Smerdon has graduated from the Leadership Greer Class of 2013.
Leadership Greer is designed to inform participants about the past, present and future of the Greer community. It creates a dialogue and sense of teamwork between participants and community leaders.
A.T. LOCKE recently attended the YMCA Open Doors Celebration, an event recognizing the end of its fundraising campaign to provide financial support to families, adults and children involved in Y programs. Jared Fogle, the Subway spokesman, was in attendance to join in on the celebration and share his experience from obesity to healthy living.
A.T. LOCKE is a proud supporter of the Open Doors Community Campaign, whose goal is to never turn anyone away because of an inability to pay for YMCA programs.
In June, A.T. LOCKE was a proud sponsor of the annual 2012 Miracle Hill Cycling Challenge, a popular event among cycling enthusiasts that raises funds and awareness for Miracle Hill Ministries. Miracle Hill Ministries is a non-profit organization in the Upstate of South Carolina dedicated to providing food, shelter and hope for those in need —– 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The A.T. LOCKE team of employees and their families supported the mission by participating in the Cleveland Park 2.5 Ride.
This year A.T. LOCKE was involved in a wonderful event, the Susan G. Komen -SC Mountains to Midlands Race for the Cure®, which helps to raise much needed funds that support the promise of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. That promise is to end breast cancer forever!
A.T. LOCKE was proud to watch earlier this year as a new fire engine was commissioned at the Taylors station.
The Center for Developmental Services or CDS has been helping families in the Upstate for years. A.T. LOCKE has been a supporter of CDS since our inception in 2008. We have helped with bookkeeping and financials and even filled in when a CDS staff member was on maternity leave.
This summer, we were proud to be a sponsor of Fun Fest 2011, a fun-filled evening at Flour Field to celebrate all of our children. The cool evening was perfect for jump castles, ice cream and an opportunity to learn more about the many partners and agencies who make CDS a wonderful resource for families who are seeking developmental evaluation, treatment education and support for their children.
The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce welcomed a record number of new members in 2011, particularly through its membership campaign held in September. Anna and Team GOLD brought in 31 members and $12,050 for the Greer Chamber during a 2-day campaign!
In October, A.T. LOCKE was a proud sponsor of the 2010 Walk for the Homeless. Anna Locke and her employees came out with their families to help raise awareness of Greenville’s homeless citizens. The walk is not just a fund raiser – it is an educational tour. The 4-mile walk takes you on a path to the human service agencies in Greenville which work year round to provide assistance.
