Countybank and Greenwood Capital recently made a donation to the Greenville Abbeville Little League on behalf of the Countybank Foundation, which was established in 1971 and represents Countybank and Greenwood Capital.
Greenwood Abbeville Little League offers boys and girls in Greenwood and Abbeville counties five divisions, including tee ball, rookies, coach pitch, minors, and majors, with children ranging from four to 12 years old. “Our little league program has emphasized giving back to the community by teaching kids the fundamentals of baseball, providing a competitive environment, and helping kids learn to handle winning and losing with good sportsmanship,” said Tyler Davis, IT Operations Manager for Countybank who also serves on the little league’s Board of Directors.
This year’s Countybank Foundation donation will financially support the purchase of equipment needed for volunteers to maintain the baseball fields throughout the little league season. “Volunteers play an important role in Greenwood Abbeville Little League, serving as coaches, scorekeepers, scoreboard operators, and coordinating events and activities,” said Adam Weyer, Greenwood Abbeville Little League President. “This includes assisting with improvements to the fields and facilities.”
In addition to financially supporting Greenwood Abbeville Little League, Countybank and Greenwood Capital associates annually support the organization by running concessions during the season.
“The Countybank Foundation is honored to support an organization that helps bring our community together,” said Patrick Craven, Financial Center Manager for Countybank who also serves on the little league’s Board of Directors. “We look forward to seeing Greenwood and Abbeville families continue to grow through organizations like Greenwood Abbeville Little League.”
