SAFE Light the Night Walkers Generate
Over $10,500 for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
COLUMBIA, South Carolina, November 10, 2016 – SAFE Federal Credit Union and its employees generated more than $10,500 in donations to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through the society’s October 27 Light the Night Walk here.
A dozen SAFE employees, representing the West Columbia, Garners Ferry, and Bishopville branches, along with SAFE headquarters in Sumter, took part in the fund-raising event. SAFE offered a corporate donation in addition to the money the walkers raised through sponsorships.
Participation in the walk is an annual event for SAFE, which has contributed more than $45,000 since 2010, with the money going toward research to find cures for blood cancer and toward financial assistance to families affected by blood cancers.
“At SAFE, it’s very important to us to support all aspects of our community,” said Antione Frederick, Branch Manager at SAFE’s West Columbia Branch. “We were happy to participate in this walk and are thrilled that we could help raise money for this important cause.”
