CHARLESTON, S.C. – Palmetto Moon, a Southern lifestyle retailer, is thrilled to announce the recipients of its “Together, Let’s Do Good” giving campaign - awarding $1,000 to 10 non-profit organizations serving the retailer’s local communities throughout the Southeast, for a total contribution of $10,000.
Launched in partnership with YETI on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29, “Together, Let’s Do Good” rallied customers across Palmetto Moon’s 37 locations to nominate their favorite philanthropy to receive a $1,000 donation. Participating shoppers were also entered to win an exclusive YETI gift bundle valued at more than $300.
“We’re incredibly proud to team up with our customers in giving back to causes that directly benefit their neighbors,” says Palmetto Moon EVP, Chief Brand Officer Amber Dube. “Palmetto Moon has always celebrated Southern lifestyles in an authentic, personal experience that brings people together. The glowing response from our local fans truly captures the community spirit at the heart of our brand.”
Among hundreds of entries submitted by shoppers across six states, Palmetto Moon selected ten winners from the following locations, along with the designated non-profit organization of their choice:
• Servants For Sight - Greenville, SC
• Families Feeding Families of Middle Georgia - Macon, GA

“We are so thrilled to partner with Palmetto Moon and are thankful for their generous donation,” says Alison Kling, Executive Director of Free 2 Teach. “This gift will directly support the teachers and children that we serve here in Madison County's three public school systems.”
