Dec. 16 - Tanger Outlets Hilton Head Donates Combined $17,650 to Non-Profit and Local Agencies

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

December 16, 2019 - Tanger Outlet Centers in Hilton Head presented three Beaufort County agencies with an annual holiday gift in December. During a series of brief ceremonies, Tanger made separate $500 holiday donations to the Bluffton Township Fire District, Beaufort County Emergency Medical Services Unit and the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office. 

The Tanger shopping centers also presented a donation of funds raised through the annual PinkStyle campaign to local non-profit, DragonBoat Beaufort. This organization is focused on providing cancer survivors the opportunity to heal and regain physical and psychological strength through the camaraderie of DragonBoat paddling and racing. The organization also provides outreach through grants to local cancer patients with needs they are unable to afford or for which they lack coverage. DragonBoat Beaufort provides support and counseling for cancer patients in treatment and in remission, including support for their caregivers, right here in our community.

This year’s campaign raised over $16,149, exceeding last year’s donation of over $13,000, to donate locally to support Beaufort County area patients in their fight against breast cancer. The funds were raised throughout the month of October as part of the 26th annual Tanger PINK campaign. 

"Tanger greatly appreciates our local agencies and non-profit organizations for the support they provide our community and shopping centers throughout the year,” stated Ashley Doepp, General Manager of the Tanger Outlets, Hilton Head.  “These groups are a pivotal reason why Beaufort County is such a great place to live and do business!”

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

December 4, 2019 - Members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Jasper County received 16 refurbished desktop computers that will be used to advance educational programs as the Club aims to empower youth to excel in school, practice good citizenship and lead healthy, productive lives. This donation was presented by Peacock Automotive.

“The Boys & Girls Clubs are so grateful for this donation. Our world is driven by technology, but it can still be costly to provide our Club members with access to the equipment necessary to develop computer skills they will need every day,” said James Dismond, area director of resource development for the Clubs.

Dismond especially looks forward to the impact the computers will have on the Clubs’ literacy program, which bridges in-person tutoring with online learning engagement to help members learn and retain improved reading abilities.

“My team with Peacock Information Technology is thrilled that we can do well by the Boys & Girls Clubs with these computers,” said John Chapman, chief technical officer for Peacock Automotive. “Although we quickly outgrow PCs in our industry, they still make great additions for any classroom, learning center or lab.”

The Dell all-in-one computers features include updated operating systems, 23-inch screens, a minimum of 4 gigabytes of RAM, built-in DVD drives, integrated Intel graphics and Ethernet ports, headphone and mic jacks, keyboards and mice.
