The Spinx Co. has donated $71,000 across five local charities including: the American Red Cross, Safe Harbor, Loaves and Fishes, Pendleton Place and the Children’s Museum of the Upstate. The Greenville, South Carolina-based fuel and convenience retail company has more than 80 locations and 50 car washes statewide.
Every year, Spinx hosts an annual charity golf classic to benefit local beneficiaries. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the company was unable to do so as regularly scheduled. Spinx decided to pivot and host a smaller, socially-distanced golf outing in addition to an intentional charitable initiative among partners to still generate funds for the five beneficiaries of the annual event. The outing was held at Greenville Country Club in November.
“It was imperative that we still find a way to give to the organizations across the Upstate that need our support, especially during these challenging times,” stated Stewart Spinks. “Although this year we were unable to host our typical celebrated charity golf classic, I am proud of our vendors and those that were able to still contribute and I look forward to hosting another successful event in 2021.”
Spinx chose beneficiaries that are aligned with its corporate charitable mission, “Spinx & Kids: Mind, Body, Spirit. Growing healthy kids where we live, work and play.”
Founded in 1972 in Greenville, The Spinx Co. operates 84 convenience retail stores throughout South Carolina, and with approximately 1,400 employees, it is the largest privately held retailer headquartered in the state.
