Charleston/Columbia/Greenville/Spartanburg, SC – Colliers | South Carolina and LCK staff and associates and the companies have pledged $100,000 in contributions to Trident United Way, United Way of the Midlands, United Way of Greenville County and United Way of the Piedmont. The pledges reflect a per capita contribution of $685.
This year, Colliers’ and LCK’s campaign theme was “Turning the Page on Literacy in South Carolina,” a giving campaign aimed at helping young children and older youth who struggle with reading and learning.

The Charleston office gardened with the Green Heart Project, the Columbia office performed yard work for Epworth Children’s Home, and the Greenville and Spartanburg offices recorded a virtual storytime and made Christmas cards for Upstate Family Resources.
