Greenville Family Partnership To Announce New Name

Greenville Family Partnership will undergo rebranding on October 1. The organization believes that the name sums up perfectly what it strives to get youth, parents, and communities to do on a daily basis, which is more important than ever because more than 72,000 Americans died from a drug overdose in 2017, including illicit drugs and prescription opioids—a two-fold increase in a decade.
The organization will be announcing its new name on Monday, October 1 at 5:30 p.m. at the Commerce Club of Greenville. Tickets are $15 and those who attend will receive a bag filled with goods from local businesses.
This opportunity came to the organization about a year ago when it applied to be a recipient of the Riggs Partners 20th Annual CreateAthon, a 24-hour marathon during which professionals in communication arts deliver marketing services to nonprofit organizations on a pro bono basis. To arrive at a manageable number of clients to serve in a 24 hour period, Riggs Partners of Columbia reviews each nonprofit application and selects clients based on the mission of the organization, the type of work requested, and the ability to produce that work in a marathon environment.
