Stewart Spinks, founder of The Spinx Co., recently presented a check for $325,250 to Kelly Jamerson, senior director of community development for the American Cancer Society. For 12 years now, Spinx has held an annual store campaign collecting donations from communities all over South Carolina in support of the American Cancer Society.
“As a cancer survivor myself, I know the importance of the work that the American Cancer Society accomplishes each and every day,” Spinks said. “For the 12th year in a row, The Spinx Company is honored to support their mission and its efforts in education, treatment and research to discover more successful treatments and ultimately a cure for cancer. I am so proud of our team’s efforts and know that our local communities will benefit greatly from their hard work and the generosity of so many of our customers.”
During the month of October, all 84 Spinx stores participated in the campaign and collected donations to support the efforts of the American Cancer Society. Below are the top-performing stores, ranked by percentage of total fundraising goal:
