SPINX RAISES $285,000 FOR THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
GREENVILLE, SC – March 11, 2022 – The Spinx Company, Greenville-based fuel and convenience retail company with more than 80 locations and 50 car washes statewide, is thrilled to announce they have raised $285,000 for the American Cancer Society during a month long, state-wide campaign to provide support for cancer patients and their families. This annual company-wide initiative brings awareness to the American Cancer Society, and those in need throughout the month of October. The 2021 theme was “Drive Out Cancer.”
This amount of funds raised could go towards providing over 11,000 individuals with free access to 24/7 information and support via phone and online chats, 5,580 nights of free lodging for cancer patients when traveling away from home for treatment or provide 4,395 breast cancer patients with one-on-one peer support from a trained volunteer.
“As a cancer survivor myself, this campaign is near and dear to my heart” said Stewart Spinks, Chairman and Founder of The Spinx Company. “I am so proud of our stores, the local community and our entire team for bringing awareness to the American Cancer Society and providing support to all those in need during their most trying time.
