Women in Business
This year for the Women in Business edition, Carolina Trust chose to recognize the women in our Operations Department.
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a portion of the Women in Business section's proceeds will be donated to Caring in Our Lifetime, which assists local women and men suffering from breast cancer. During the month of October, Carolina Trust employees will also be wearing pink ribbons, to support the cause.
Caring In Our Lifetime
Caring In Our Lifetimes is a non- profit organization that provides financial assistance with medical expenses to individuals in Horry and Georgetown counties affected by breast cancer. Caring in Our Lifetime was founded in 1997 as a means for the sales staff at Time Warner Cable in Myrtle Beach, SC, to assist one of its former co-workers who had been diagnosed with breast cancer.
After the first year, Caring In Our Lifetime breast cancer charity auction was officially formed to assist local breast cancer survivors with financial needs. The effort has continued annually to help many more survivors with their medical bills related to breast cancer.
Check out this segment of Living Local Carolina, where Show Host/Producer Rainee Romero and Carolina Trust Brand Ambassador, August Mize, sat down with Caring in Our Lifetime Board Member, Susan Branstrom, to learn about how the organization helps members of our community who are battling breast cancer.
