Greater Cayce-West Columbia Chamber surprises Springdale PD with donation
Springdale, SC (Angelica Iglesias) – Springdale Police Chief Kevin Cornett was surprised with a $2000 donation from the Greater Cayce-West Columbia Chamber of Commerce, Dream Makers of GFWC-SC, and Something Borrowed Wedding and Party Rentals during the grand opening of the town’s new Dollar General on July 12.
According to the police department’s Facebook page, the donation will go towards purchasing in-car computers for the department.
Chief Cornett did not know he was specifically asked to attend the ribbon cutting for a reason and had no idea the surprise was coming. The donors saw what Springdale’s police department needed and thought the big grand opening was the perfect opportunity for a surprise.
“We are always honored by the awesome generosity of our business partners,” said the department’s Facebook post.
