NEWBERRY — Following the Veterans Parade Saturday Samsung hosted a meet and greet in the Newberry Opera House lobby to introduce themselves to the community.
Activities include a kid’s corner with a Veterans Day card making station. Immediately following the meet and greet was a luncheon where veterans and their families ate for free.
“Samsung is saluting the United States Veterans. We are grateful to partner with local Newberry County American Legion Troops 24, 70 and 219 in providing a complementary and festive luncheon and program to thank them,” said Heather Matthews, Samsung representative. “Globally, Samsung, for more than 20 years, has been partnering with American Legion. Here in the Midlands we recognize there are more than 81,000 veterans who have bravely fought for the United States of America and we want them to know we are grateful and we are here to support them.”
During the meet and greet there were Harvest Hope Food Bank packed to feed boxes, which contained a weeks worth of shelf stable food. Samsung recently partnered with Harvest Hope to make sure veterans in need are fed. Matthews said those boxes were going to be given out to anyone who may need one.
