31 Days of Awareness


March Campaign Celebration - Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.  To help raise awareness our goal is to fill up the March calendar with locally-owned business partners.  We will encourage community members to visit their stores/companies and in return the business owners will support us!   We are having a wonderful response by local merchants who are participating by either choosing a day(s), week or the entire month to host what we are calling a "give back" day(s) to the CLC Foundation.   We are so thankful for the support of small businesses and excited to urge everyone to support them as well.  Essentially, these businesses are making “Dreams Possible” for our 1,500 individuals with special needs and disabilities right here in Spartanburg County.  We like to call our partners “Community Champions” and we appreciate their commitment to help us spread awareness and raise funds. This campaign is a collaborative effort and we want to make sure all the locally owned businesses in Spartanburg have a chance to participate.  Like the saying goes, it’s the gift that gives back and right now… everyone helping us is a gift!

If your businesses would like to participate in our March “Give Back” campaign, please call Marisa Cecil at 562.2278.

What we need from you:

  • Date(s) you wish to participate in the month of March
  • Percentage you are willing to donate back to the CLCF
  • Your logo

“It is so heartwarming to see our community come together to help fund opportunities for the incredible individuals we serve at the CLC,” Marisa Cecil – CLC Foundation President
