GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Advoco, a leading EAM software consulting firm, hosts Connect, an annual user conference in Greenville, SC. This year the event moved to a virtual format leaving budgeted meal money available. Advoco used this catering budget to partner with Table 301 and deliver boxed meals to local organizations impacted by COVID-19. This initiative has been named Connect for Good GVL.
The program is built on bringing the Greenville community together and spreading smiles to those in need. Connect for Good GVL supports different organizations to make the biggest impact possible by not only providing food for the community, but also creating jobs for the restaurant industry.
To date, over 11,000 meals have been shared with Project Host, United Ministries, Prisma Health, Bon Secours St. Francis, Safe Harbor, The Family Effect, YouthBASE, Backpack Buddies, Towers East, the Ronald McDonald House, the Greenville Police and Fire Departments, and others.
“We started this program with the goal to provide 2,000 meals,” commented Marty Osborn, partner at Advoco. “Since that time, this initiative has absolutely exploded, and we have had the opportunity to partner with many wonderful organizations. The smiles being shared and the impact this program is making in our community are humbling. I hope other business leaders will join us in supporting Connect for Good GVL.”
Advoco is actively seeking other companies to contribute to the program. Partnerships with Mill Village Farms, Trinity Lutheran Church, Infor, ScanSource, Next, and Peacock Marketing have already been formed to increase the scope of these efforts.
