Canal Insurance has been supporting the Upstate for over 80 years. In their continued commitment to philanthropy within the Upstate, Canal has pledged sponsorship to the 6th Annual LEAD Greenville Event. Otherwise known as Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, LEAD is dedicated to bridging the Upstate community and law enforcement together in the name of appreciation and gratitude. LEAD Greenville gives the community an opportunity to say thank you to all law enforcement personnel in Greenville County including Greenville, Greer, Travelers Rest, Mauldin, Simpsonville & Fountain Inn. The organizations, institutions, and businesses that sponsor this event are providing the financial support that makes this special event possible. This year’s sixth annual appreciation day will take place May 8th, 2020. Throughout the week in the days leading up to the event, officers in the Upstate are able to enter for the chance to win prizes each day, and are invited to attend the appreciation breakfast Friday morning at The Westin Poinsett.
“Canal insurance is proud to be a LEAD Greenville sponsor, as this event is dedicated to honoring the exemplary service our communities receive on a daily basis. We are excited to help dedicate a week to express gratitude for law enforcement and the integral role these individuals play in our society. We are especially thankful that we have an opportunity to intentionally honor the men and women who serve the Highway Patrol, as they ensure that Canal’s insureds are protected on the road,” says Paul Brocklebank, President and CEO of Canal Insurance. Canal secured the exclusive centerpiece sponsorship available for the event, and will be donating merchandise for the officers’ “Valor Bags” as a token of their appreciation for law enforcement.
Seabrook Marchant, founder of LEAD Greenville and president of Marchant Real Estate, has witnessed the growth of this event firsthand,“What started as an appreciative breakfast at Tommy’s Ham House, has flourished into a large and engaging community movement. This is so much more than an event, it signifies our community coming together with eagerness to serve, and the compassion to give. Canal’s positive influence not only expands throughout Greenville but also nationwide, so we will not soon forget their sponsorship and support. Their generous contribution to LEAD Greenville will allow us to show our appreciation to the men and women who serve and protect our community each and every day.”
