September 18, Charleston County Aviation Authority employees presented donations collected during its “CCAA Cares” initiative to My Sister’s House. CCAA Cares is a program designed by employees to show their support to different non-profit groups within the community by participating in fundraising events lead by the Administration Team.
Airport CEO and executive director Paul Campbell said, “ We were excited to select My Sister’s House as our partner. This organization provides amazing services and resources to help and empower victims and their children of domestic violence in Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley counties. I could not be more proud of the employees for their hard work and commitment.”
Aviation Authority departments were broken into three teams: Team S.W.A.T. (Service, Willingness, Attitude, Teamwork) consisting of the police department, communications, ground transportation operations, and public affairs; Team Mission Possible consisting of the maintenance and operations departments; and Team Victorious Secrets consisting of the human resources, finance, procurement, properties, engineering, and IT/security departments.
In addition to the supplies donated, more than $1,200 dollars in cash and gift cards were also collected for the program.
Amber Cook, volunteer coordinator at My Sister’s House said, “We are so overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for My Sister’s House. This is what it’s all about, the community’s commitment to helping victims of domestic violence and working to end domestic violence.”
My Sister’s House, Inc., the community’s longest operating domestic violence organization, has been serving victims of domestic violence for nearly 40 years.
