CBI Jacksonville Takes a Day to Give Back

Our CBI Jacksonville Office recently took a day to volunteer with the non-profit organization, Bring Your Brokenness. Bring Your Brokenness is an organization committed to eating disorder recovery, and their mission is to provide a safe and loving environment for those with eating disorders and to help them find hope and healing for life transformation through God’s word. Bring Your Brokenness offers a variety of services to their clients including support groups, recovery-focused resources, coaching, conferences and retreats.

The CBI Jacksonville Team felt passionate about supporting this organization and they recently took a day to travel to a Bring Your Brokenness facility in Amelia Island to lend a hand wherever they were needed. The team got on the road at 5:30 a.m. to arrive in Amelia Island in time to prepare breakfast and lunch for 11 women staying at the facility. These women traveled to Florida from all over the country to find respite and support for their severe eating disorders. When not preparing and serving meals, the team assisted in cleaning and tidying the home where these women were staying. 

Our CBI Associates have not stopped living our corporate philosophy – to love and serve others – despite the busy time of the holiday season. We are thrilled to see the amazing outreach our markets have been participating in and the positive impact they  have on so many communities.

CBI Charleston Supports the Low Country Food Bank this Holiday Season

Our CBI Charleston office exemplified the Live Love Serve Philosophy recently when they volunteered with the Lowcountry Food Bank of South Carolina.

The Lowcountry Food Bank leads the fight against hunger throughout the ten coastal counties of South Carolina and is instrumental in ensuring many members of the Charleston community don't go hungry. In 2019, the Lowcountry Food Bank distributed 32,156,354 pounds of food to inividuals and families across the state. 


The CBI Charleston office wanted to do something this holiday season that would support their local community. The team decided to take a day and volunteer at the Food Bank. While they were there they sorted, organized and packed food donations to be passed out to Charleston County School Students who are in need. By the end of the day, the CBI Team had packaged 580 boxes to be distributed to these students and their families. 

Kerby Teller, Senior Vice President and Market Leader in Charleston says, “I’m so grateful for my CBI Team and their continuous passion for serving those in our community. I could not be prouder of the work we did at the Lowcountry Food Bank, and I’m so glad we were able to make such a positive impact for our neighbors in need during this holiday season.”

The holiday season is one of the busiest times for local Food Banks. If you are in the Charleston area and want to learn more about how you can support the Lowcountry Food Bank, visit their website at https://www.lowcountryfoodbank.org/

CBI Greenville Helps Fight Food Insecurity by Volunteering with Project Host

Each year our CBI Greenville office volunteers with Project Host, an organization dedicated to fighting food insecurity in the greater Greenville area by feeding the hungry, training and educating the un- and underemployed and paying it forward to neighbors in need. 

This year the Greenville Team decided it was more important than ever to join forces and try to provide some support for community members in the area. The CBI Team gave their time to go volunteer in person at Project Host and lend an extra hand wherever it was needed. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were a few extra restrictions this year, but the team still found ways to offer support by bagging lunches, handing them out to guests, cleaning up around the facility and ensuring enough lunches were prepared for the next day.

Bowman Still, a member of CBI’s Business Development Team, said “This year it was a no-brainer for us to offer up our time to the organization we’ve all come to appreciate. Project Host serves more than 250 underserved Greenville patrons per day providing hot meals, snacks, water, socks, masks and more. The gratitude that Project Host shows our CBI Team for volunteering year after year is what keeps us coming back. We have a special place in our hearts for the people who dedicate their lives to serving the underserved and homeless in Greenville, and we will continue to support them however we can.” 

CBI and the Live Love Serve Foundation are extremely proud of our Associates in Greenville and their willingness to live by our Live Love Serve Philosophy. If you’d like to find out more about Project Host and how you might be able to support this outstanding organization visit www.projecthost.org.
