We do this through our local charitable giving programs that support a nonprofit organization chosen annually by each individual office, as well as the MGC Long Run, our firm-wide charitable event that supports the USO South Carolina.
The MGC Long Run
Since 2014, MGC has contributed more than $150,000 to nonprofit organizations, including the USO South Carolina, through the MGC Long Run. The MGC Long Run is comprised of a 15k, 5k, Virtual 5k and Kids’ Fun Run in Columbia, South Carolina the first weekend in February each year. The event brings out over 750 runners and walkers and 200 volunteers.
We are proud to support our troops through the USO South Carolina. Many of our employees have strong ties to the military; our employees are veterans, members of the Guard or have family and friends who fight for our country.
For over 77 years, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the US military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. The USO South Carolina operates a center at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, a center for military applicants at MEPS Fort Jackson, a day room at McCrady Training Center, a United through Reading Room at JNGB McEntire and provides programs and services throughout the state of South Carolina.
