LIBERTY – The newly formed Manufacturers Caring for Pickens County Forum has announced the second on a series of social outreach grants to local charities and community service organizations.
The $1,000 grant will be shared by the Samaritan Health Clinic, Wounded Warrior Project and Honoring Their Service Inc. All three organizations have demonstrated outstanding community efforts to benefit the residents of Pickens County.
“We are pleased to support Samaritan Health Clinic which provides an important service in our community by offering, among other things, free medical care to residents of Pickens County who are otherwise unable to pay or have limited incomes,” said Linda Bacigalupo, president and chief financial officer of Tri-Tech USA Inc. Bacigalupo is also a MCPC board member.
“Likewise, the Wounded Warrior projects honors and empowers wounded soldiers returning from the battlefield and supports our servicemen and women and their families through the recovery and rehabilitation process,” she added. “We are grateful to these dedicated men and women for their service to our country and honored to support this worthy organization.”
Michael R. Fee, vice president and owner of Reliable Automatic Sprinkler Co. Inc. and board member, echoed the same sentiments.
“Being a ski instructor for handicapped children and disabled military personnel for Adaptive Sports Foundation and the Wounded Warrior Project, I am very excited to support Honoring Their Service for great programs they provide for our military that come back from war with a permanent disability like a missing limb or PTSD,” he said.
MCPC recently worked with the Pickens County School District to update guidance counselors on current job skills needed and is in the process of giving guidance counselors and student tours of our facilities.
Member companies of MCPC include Sealevel Systems Inc., Tri-Tech USA Inc., Palmetto Plating Company Inc., Reliable Automatic Sprinkler Co. Inc., Cornell Dubilier, MST Concrete Products Inc. and St. Jude Medical.
