Miracle Hill Ministries CEO Awarded Order of the Palmetto

Posted By Sandra Furnell, Communications & Marketing Director , Thursday, August 30, 2018

Miracle Hill Ministries’ longtime President/CEO, Reid Lehman, was awarded the Order of the Palmetto by SC Governor Henry McMaster at a ceremony held on August 27, 2018 at the Greenville Rescue Mission.  The Order of the Palmetto is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement and the state’s highest civilian honor awarded to citizens of South Carolina for extraordinary lifetime service and achievements of national or statewide significance.

The Governor commended Lehman for being a force for good in the Upstate and said, “Reid Lehman is not a man who says ‘we have problems, how do we fix it?’ Instead, he has a vision of where we want to go and says ‘Now let’s get there’.”  He added, “When you have strong people who are determined to get something good done, it is an unstoppable force. “

Lehman has provided leadership for the non-profit for nearly 35 years and has established numerous community partnerships to ensure that homeless children and adults receive compassionate care and resources to help them re-integrate into society.  He also served on the Board of Directors for TogetherSC, South Carolina’s only organization focused solely on supporting and strengthening the state’s nonprofit community through education, advocacy, communications, collaboration and leadership, for four years.

Deb Richardson-Moore, Pastor of Triune Mercy Center in Greenville, spoke at the award ceremony about Lehman’s efforts to coordinate the closure of ‘tent city’ and promote collaboration among agencies serving the homeless.  The resulting Homelessness White Paper and Greenville Homeless Alliance demonstrate “a partnership of funders, service providers, city and county in a way that would have been unthinkable a few years ago,” she said. “Our community is poised to create affordable housing, and I believe it’s because of Reid’s foresight.”

More than 100 people attended the award ceremony, which was held in the gymnasium at the Greenville Rescue Mission, the first of nine shelters spread across the Upstate. Upon receiving the award Reid said, “The sacrificial work at Miracle Hill is done by the folks on the front lines – those visiting foster homes, serving in cottages at the Children’s Home, the counselors and case managers at the missions. This much-appreciated recognition represents the people who really deserve it, the people who give their lives away every single day.”

About Miracle Hill Ministries
Miracle Hill Ministries is the Upstate’s largest, most comprehensive provider of services to homeless children and adults.  Serving the Upstate since 1937, Miracle Hill’s programs include rescue shelters for the homeless, residential addiction recovery, transitional housing, shelters for children, and foster care.  Miracle Hill’s eight thrift stores provide employment opportunities for the community as well as Miracle Hill guests transitioning out of programs. Miracle Hill has been recognized as a Certified Mission and has been awarded the Certificate of Excellence by City Gate Network, a distinction given to fewer than 30 missions nationwide. Additionally, Miracle Hill’s foster care program and group homes for children have been accredited by CARF International.

Southeastern Freight Lines Delivers $140,000 Fundraising Campaign for United Way

Posted By Joey Wallace, VP Marketing and Communications, Monday, August 20, 2018

Employees of Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload transportation services,  have completed their 2018 United Way campaign with a total of more than $140,000.

“Southeastern Freight and its employees have been an amazing partner for United Way and the entire community for decades,” said United Way President & CEO Sara Fawcett. “We are grateful for their enthusiastic support of our goal to fight for the health, education and economic mobility of every person in the Midlands.”

The Southeastern Freight Lines employee campaign was led by Stephanie Cullum, Jessica Oswald and Alison Sturkie.

Southeastern also supports United Way’s efforts to increase childhood literacy through 17 volunteers who participate in the Midlands Reading Consortium, a program designed to match tutors with K-2nd grade students for one-on-one tutoring throughout an entire school year.

“For many years, Southeastern has supported United Way and the work they do to make our community a better place for everyone,” said Mike Heaton, Sr. VP for Sales & Marketing at Southeastern Freight Lines. “We believe in strengthening the communities we serve by investing in programs that make a measurable difference.”

Thanks to partners like Southeastern Freight Lines, United Way is leading the charge in improving quality of life in the Midlands by working to prevent homelessness, to provide affordable eye and dental care, and to prepare children to enter kindergarten ready to learn and graduate high school on time.
