United Way of Kershaw County kicks off 2011 campaign with visits to donor organizations, businesses
United Way 3
Staff at the Savage, Royall and Sheheen law firm in Camden collected stacks of children's books to donate to United Way of Kershaw County, which will distribute them to literacy organizations in the county. The law firm has already raised approximately $4,500. Accounting firm Sheheen, Hancock and Godwin, also on hand, has already raised more than $3,000.
The United Way of Kershaw County kicked off its yearly campaign Monday, with the highlight coming early in the morning when Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan took a pie in the face outside the Applied Technology Education Campus (ATEC). “We like to put the fun in dysfunctional,” announced Morgan shortly before taking repeated clumps of whipped cream to the face. “…I’ll take a pie in the face from anyone who wants to donate $1,000 to the United Way…” Sharon Clyburn -- representing ATEC’s nursing program, which raised the most money for Relay for Life to earn the honor -- had the privilege of serving Morgan the pie. ATEC hosted a breakfast for the faculty and several representatives from United Way, including President Donny Supplee, Campaign/Communications Coordinator Pam Spivey and Director of Finance and Administration Janis Gardner and this year’s campaign chair, Johnny Deal.
