COLUMBIA, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NBSC, a division of Synovus Bank, announced that it will make a
cash donation to the Low Country South Carolina Chapter of the American
Red Cross, United Way of the Midlands, and the Central Carolina
Community Foundation (CCCF) in support of their ongoing response to the
South Carolina floods. NBSC’s $100,000 donation will be divided between
the three organizations.
The donation was announced at the University of South
Carolina-Vanderbilt game on October 17 — the Gamecocks’ first post-flood
appearance at Williams-Brice Stadium. The USC Athletic department used
NBSC’s pledge as a challenge to encourage fans in attendance to give to
the United Way of the Midlands and American Red Cross.
“While the water from these historic floods has receded, the impact of
the storm will be with us for some time,” said Chuck Garnett, president
and CEO of NBSC. “Even the most challenging situations bring out the
best in South Carolinians, and all of us at NBSC are inspired by the
courage, resiliency, and community spirit we’ve witnessed across our
state. We are proud to support the important work of the Red Cross,
United Way, and CCCF — and we are gratified and impressed by the
response of the Gamecock Nation to the challenge they heard last

administered by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce and other civic
organizations around the state.
