  SPC Mechanical Supports Community Through 
  Fundraising  Efforts

SPC Mechanical recently held its 2 nd Charity Golf Tournament with proceeds of nearly $27,000 going to benefit four children's backpack buddy programs across NC. Checks for $6740 were distributed by SPC Division Managers to CHEW INC of Wilson County, NOURISHNC of New Hanover County, Second Harvest Food Bank of Forsyth County and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle of Wake County. SPC feels strongly about giving back to these communities where their offices are located. Special thanks to all the generous sponsors for helping make this happen!
