The Countybank Foundation recently made its final donation installment of $6,500 to Anderson Interfaith Ministries (AIM), fulfilling the pledged amount of $23,000 over the course of three years.
Michael Wooles, Senior Vice President and Anderson Market Executive for Countybank, and Peggy Chamblee, Vice President and Financial Center Manager for Countybank, presented the check on behalf of the foundation to Kristi King-Brock, Executive Director of AIM, and Susan Anderson, Vice President of Resource Development for AIM.
Donated funds from Countybank and Greenwood Capital go toward AIM events throughout the year geared toward raising money for struggling individuals and families in Anderson County. “Countybank and Greenwood Capital have been honored to partner with AIM over the past three years,” said Wooles. “We’ve seen firsthand their extraordinary work building up our community by providing a helping hand and supporting those in need.”
Countybank and Greenwood Capital associates have been actively involved in supporting AIM’s events and fundraising activities over the past three years. This year Countybank served as the main sponsor for AIM’s Tailgate Party—Party with a Purpose, a virtual event with proceeds going to AIM’s five programs: Hunger Ministries, Pivotal Support, Women and Children Succeeding, Employment Pathways, and Housing Rehabilitation.
Associates at Countybank’s Anderson financial center also participated in AIM’s annual Hearts for Helping fundraiser this in February. “The Hearts for Helping fundraiser is just one of many opportunities for our associates, and the community, to come together in support of a great cause that can positively impact someone’s life,” said Chamblee.
“AIM is grateful for Countybank and Greenwood Capital’s partnership over the past three years in helping us fulfill our mission of providing resource, support, and education, which leads our clients to self-sufficiency,” said King-Brock. “Together we are ‘Giving Hope and Changing Lives.’”
AIM is a non-profit organization in Anderson, SC. Their mission is to connect people in the Anderson community with the support, resources, and education so they can empower themselves to become self-sufficient.
