A tradition of giving back to the community
RPWB recognizes that its team is composed of individuals with a wide array of values, passions and backgrounds. This attitude is what drives the firm’s focus on community service. Whether it is painting nursing homes, donating school items for children or collecting food items for the local food bank, RPWB is committed to giving back to our community.
We support organizations that align with our firm’s mission. This includes groups that help children and the less fortunate as well as those that advance civic engagement and otherwise contribute to the strength, well-being and vibrancy of our communities.
Listed below is just a small sample of RPWB’s community service efforts.
Trident United Way Day of Caring
Each fall, the firm participates in Trident United Way’s Day of Caring event. Day of Caring provides an opportunity for corporate volunteer teams to partner with schools and agencies in the Charleston area to increase community engagement. Past projects have included building a café for an elementary school, painting buildings, picking up roadside litter, and planting gardens and landscaping.
Lowcountry Food Bank
When a statistic revealed that 1 in 4 children in the Charleston area experiences hunger, RPWB knew it had a job to do. The firm teamed up to collect healthy, non-perishable food items for Lowcountry Food Bank. As an office, over 500 items were donated to replenish the food bank’s shelves.
Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding
RPWB sponsored Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding’s annual fundraising event, In the Company of Horses. The event benefits CATR’s Scholarship Program that provides therapeutic horseback riding lessons to mentally and physically disabled children and adults.
Share Our Suzy
Share Our Suzy was created by friends of Suzy McGrane, a local photographer who was diagnosed with breast cancer. The organization’s initial intention was to raise money to help with McGrane’s medical expenses. Ultimately, breast cancer claimed her life, but her friends continued Share Our Suzy to support breast cancer patients financially so that their focus may be solely on recovery. RPWB is proud to sponsor an organization that has helped so many women battling this terrible disease.
Lowcountry Orphan Relief
Each year, RPWB partners with Lowcountry Orphan Relief to gather donations for area-children, many of whom have experienced abuse and neglect. School supplies, backpacks and uniforms are donated to ensure children of the Lowcountry are prepared to return to school.
Barnwell County United Way Stuff the Bus Event
RPWB employees in Barnwell volunteered at the Barnwell County United Way Stuff the Bus event. Stuff the Bus collected school supplies and monetary donations for the three school districts in Barnwell County. Guidance counselors distributed the supplies as the need arose to students in each school RPWB employees collected, sorted and organized donations. Overall, more than $700 was raised along with 10 carts of school supplies.
Lung Force Walk for American Lung Association in South Carolina
Lung Cancer is the number one cancer killer of American women, but very few women see lung cancer as a threat to their health. The American Lung Association’s Lung Force initiative is working to change that and make lung cancer in women a public health priority. When Lung Force launched in 2014, RPWB was one of the first corporate sponsors to join the movement as a local sponsor of the Lung Force Run/Walk Charleston.
Barnwell County United Way’s Project Care Day
Annually, the firm sponsors, donates and participates in Barnwell County United Way’s Project Care Day. Barnwell County residents and employees come together to perform community service projects to advance the common good in the area. Past projects have included landscaping, painting, installing flooring, constructing wheelchair ramps and building a born to learn trail.
