Angel Tree
Nov 27 all-day
Online and in person drop off

Every Child Deserves a Merry Christmas

Every year, The Salvation Army of Greenville provides Christmas gifts to more than 1,500 children through the Angel Tree program. In the tri-county area (Greenville, Pickens and Oconee Counties), The Salvation Army serves over 2,500 children! Without Angel Tree, many of these children would otherwise have very little or nothing to open on Christmas morning. However, thanks to our generous community, these Angels will have a merry Christmas! Angel Tree gives individuals and partnering corporations an opportunity to “adopt” less fortunate children and provide them with personalized gifts and necessities. Because all Salvation Army Angels are not served by other holiday assistance programs, donors can be confident their gifts go directly, and without excessive overhead, to children who are truly in need. Click here for more information about how to apply for Angel Tree Christmas assistance.

Nov 27 all-day
Online

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Carolina Recycling Association recognizes the inherent value of diversity, equity, and inclusion to our organization, governance, and membership. Diversity and inclusivity increases our strength by enhancing our understanding of people from all walks of life and bringing more varied personal and career experiences to our mission and actions. This will only broaden our ability to fulfill our purpose to advance waste reduction and recycling in ALL segments of the population.

Our plan:

Form an Advisory Committee

CRA will immediately form an Advisory Committee made up of board members and CRA members/stakeholders to meet quarterly and at the conference:

  • To look at CRA’s activities and policies through the lense of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DE&I).
  • To advise the CRA on matters respecting and prioritizing diversity and inclusion in the CRA’s activities and governance.
  • To advise the CRA on ways to include, inspire, and impact communities of color and underserved communities in the Carolinas’ recycling industry in all sectors

Data

CRA will begin collecting organizational data on a voluntary basis about membership and participation that includes recognizing racial and ethnic information to help build our understanding of our own organizational composition.

Support

  • Provide 10 CRA membership scholarships for Minority Serving Institutions.
  • Provide a minimum of 10 scholarships to Minority Serving Institutions for the 2021 Conference.
  • Provide CRA membership scholarships for Minority/Women-Owned Business Enterprises.
  • Provide scholarships to Minority/Women-Owned Business Enterprises for the 2021 conference.
  • Develop an Online Forum devoted to equity and inclusion in the Carolinas recycling industry through our new online community
  • Devote space and time for DE&I Committee Meeting at the CRA Conference

DHEC launches new coronavirus tracking tool for South Carolina
Nov 27 all-day
Online

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) launched a new coronavirus tracking tool.

The new webpage provides an at-a-glance view of several important data elements used to assess measures of impact from COVID-19 in South Carolina, including information for the current day, previous day, and previous 14 days. The data elements represented in the dashboard include:

  • Rate of cases per 100,000
  • Rate of tests per 100,000
  • Percent positive
  • Deaths by date
  • Hospitalizations
  • ICU hospitalizations
  • COVID-19 patients

DHEC officials say it’s important to note that one of these data elements should not be viewed as more important than another; instead these elements should be viewed together as a whole to provide an overview of South Carolina trends.

For more detailed information at the county level, continue to visit DHEC’s county-level dashboard page.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND ADDICTION

There is a heavy correlation between domestic violence and addiction. Both perpetrators and victims have high rates of substance use disorder or admit to abusing substances in the past year. It can also be very difficult for victims of domestic violence to seek help for their addiction. According to SAMHSA, more than 60% of women seeking drug or alcohol treatment claim their abuser tried to prevent them from going to treatment. Domestic violence and addiction are two complicated issues that often overlap.

Some statistics to help illustrate this fact include:
