VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR STANDING AGAINST VIOLENCE EVERYDAY, INC., FOR ITS IMPRESSIVE ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN THIS GREAT STATE, TO COMMEND ITS FINE STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS, AND TO EXTEND BEST WISHES FOR CONTINUED SUCCESS IN CARRYING OUT THE ORGANIZATION'S WORTHY MISSION.
Whereas, the South Carolina Senate is pleased to learn of the excellent work of Standing Against Violence Everyday, Inc. (SAVE), a Mauldin-based 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt nonprofit organization dedicated to helping rebuild lives, families, and communities through education on dating abuse and domestic violence; and
Whereas, SAVE's mission is to provide relief to families and individuals affected by domestic violence and to address the needs of these individuals in the areas of economics, shelter, and basic quality of life. Through community outreach efforts, SAVE is able to mobilize individuals and build partnerships and alliances that are meaningful in realizing the organization's goals each year; and
Whereas, SAVE simultaneously works to end violence of any and every kind because nothing destroys the fabric of families more than witnessing or experiencing violence in word or deed; and
Whereas, SAVE relies on a strong board of directors, volunteer team, and supporters, who assist throughout the year; and
Whereas, in the course of pursuing its mission, SAVE has assisted more than two hundred families and individuals; hosted ProjectFeed500, which in five years has fed over twenty thousand individuals in Greenville County through more than fifty thousand community service hours; hosted Giving Back to the Community, benefiting over one thousand five hundred youth in five years; and partnered with legislators, churches, and various agencies to educate, combat, and save families and individuals affected by domestic violence. Further, on March 16, 2019, SAVE will host its sixth annual Women's Empowerment Luncheon, which this year explores the theme of "Women Leading With Influence"; and
Whereas, for its dedicated labors, SAVE has been honored by the BMW Manufacturing Plant. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, recognize and honor Standing Against Violence Everyday, Inc., for its impressive accomplishments in this great State, commend its fine staff and volunteers, and extend best wishes for continued success in carrying out the organization's worthy mission.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Standing Against Violence Everyday, Inc.
