SCBT Donates $3,000 to Blair Crosby Wellness Center
COLUMBIA, SC - South Carolina Bank and Trust donated $3,000 to the Blair D. Crosby Wellness Center in a presentation at 10:00 a.m. today.
The Blair D. Crosby Wellness Center is a 501 (c) (3) organization that was founded in 2008 by Blain Crosby. The Center, which is directed by Arlene Sease-Crosby, a SC certified teacher, provides after school educational programs, as well as physical activities for children in kindergarten through eighth grade five days a week.
"The Center provides much needed services to the local community," said Ronny Maxwell, vice president, SCBT. "We appreciate the hard work of the Crosby family and the many volunteers who assist in the day-to-day operation of the center."
“The Center is something that we strongly believe in. It is also a way of giving back to our community. We did not have a place like the Center to assist with our education when we came along. Also, we’d like to leave a legacy for our daughter, Blair Crosby, whom the Center is named after, hopefully a legacy that she will continue and build upon," said Blain Crosby. "Our future plans for the Center are to build a state of the art gym, to provide transportation for our students, and to get more of the community involved," added Arlene Crosby.
Donations to the center can be made at the Blair D. Crosby Wellness Center, 2523 Main Highway, Bamberg, SC 29003 or at SCBT's Bamberg office. For questions about the Center or how to get involved, please call the center (803) 245-0040 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
