Earlier this month, $25,000 was presented to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Upstate by the Rite Aid Foundation at the grand opening of Spartanburg’s new Rite Aid Distribution Center. We are grateful to Rite Aid and all the community leaders who brought such a corporate citizen to Spartanburg. This funding came from Rite Aid’s KidCents program.
Friday afternoon, a woman left a message at my office for me to call her, as she had something urgent to discuss with me. I was on my way to the Cherokee Education Liftoff for KNOW(2) when I got the message and called her. In a very excited voice she began telling me about how much the KNOW(2) initiative had meant to her son and his children.
