YMC One is where togetherness and awesomeness mashup. YMC One is volunteerism with a little swagger. We live and work in a vibrant community, and we leverage our people, ideas and resources to enhance opportunities in Greenville, South Carolina and surrounding communities.
As a creative agency, we make a living helping organizations tell their stories. There’s a lot of great things going on in Greenville. YMC One allow us to peel back the inner layers that have put our city on the map. Yeah, we’re THAT Greenville (#YeahThatGreenville), and YMC One reflects a significant commitment by your marketing co. to empower the grassroots efforts of area nonprofits.
Once a month, one charity is chosen by YMC One. Every team member gets the opportunity to choose and lead a project with a local charity. Collectively, YMC comes together to drive meaningful change through hands on support and financial assistance.
For April, YMC One had the joy of joining Victory Junction and the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation at the GHS Children's Hospital.
Jennifer and Chad from the design department helped run games, paint faces and bring smiles at their carnival. There were different booths for kids to play with like ping pong, ring toss, archery (plastic), inflatable bowling, golf/putt putt. Kids could play the games and win tickets. When they were done, they could exchange their tickets for prizes. Jennifer was in charge of the crafts section, monitoring sand art, painting sun catchers, and face painting. Chad worked a fishing game.
A Personal Story from Chad:
"The first child came in and walked right up to my station because he wanted to fish. His name was Jacob, and he loved to fish. He spent nearly 30 minutes with me and we had a blast. When it was time for him to go to the next carnival game, he just started to walk off, until being yoked back by his IV. He said, "I forgot about my arm-thing!" This was an amazing moment for me because I realized in real time why we were there. We were there to give these kids the chance to forget that they were sick." -- Chad Picha, Senior Graphic Designer
