GREENVILLE, South Carolina – J.L. Mann High School students raised $319,303 during Spirit Week to benefit TD SYNNEX Share the Magic. From Sept. 9-16, student leaders engaged the student body through a series of school-hosted events and competitions, as well as hosted community activations throughout the Upstate – profit shares with local restaurants, a silent auction, and other events – to fuel their fundraising total revealed on Friday.
Every year, the J.L. Mann Patriots face off against the Greenville High Red Raiders in this charitable fundraising competition ahead of the rivalry football game. Each school unveiled their fundraising totals at halftime during Friday’s game. Together, the two schools raised $627,382.
“It’s incredible that high school students are able to raise such a tremendous amount of money for charities during one week,” said Peter Larocque, president for North American technology solutions at TD SYNNEX and founder of TD SYNNEX Share the Magic. “Their hard work and passion for giving back to their community is simply inspiring, and we are honored and thankful to have been selected to be the beneficiary of their efforts.”
TD SYNNEX Share the Magic is a fundraising initiative created by TD SYNNEX to support charities that focus on the needs of children, wellness and the digital divide. Since its founding in Greenville in 2011, Share the Magic chapters have been established in Arizona, Canada, California, Colorado, Illinois and Texas. TD SYNNEX Share the Magic has raised more than $17 million across all markets with each hosting its own series of events ranging from galas, celebrations and golf tournaments to silent auctions and fun walks.
In the Upstate, TD SYNNEX Share the Magic benefits four local charities: A Child’s Haven, Clement’s Kindness, Make-A-Wish® South Carolina and Pendleton Place. The Spirit Week funds will be split equally between each organization. This year, Greenville’s TD SYNNEX Share the Magic 12th Annual Celebration will take place on Saturday, Oct. 8 at Hartness.
“On behalf of the student council, we are incredibly excited that we, as high school students, held the privilege of leading such an amazing week for such a precious cause,” said Tatiana James, student body president of J.L. Mann High School. “My top goal this year was inclusivity, and our student council did a super job getting everyone excited and involved. Being able to experience firsthand the work of each TD SYNNEX Share the Magic charity and building a personal connection with them drove us to the finish line, and they were wonderful partners in helping us execute events to their highest potential. Thanks to this teamwork, we were able to make history and break records that we could have never imagined!”
