City of Sumter Celebrates Extra Mile Day

SUMTER, S.C. (Oct. 30, 2020) – Mayor Joe McElveen has declared Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020, as “Extra Mile Day” in the City of Sumter to recognize organizations that are making significant contributions to the community.

The contributions of Pilgrim’s Pride, Sumter School District and Prisma Health Tuomey Hospital have been submitted by Mayor McElveen as Sumter’s 2020 “Extra Mile Day” honorees. Each organization has innovated its delivery of services, education and healthcare in the midst of the current public health crisis to meet the demands of the community in unique ways. These organizations are being selected in tandem with Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020, being proclaimed as “Extra Mile Day.”

“Across our community, there are organizations and people that are choosing to ‘go the extra mile’ in personal effort, volunteerism, and service,” stated Mayor McElveen. “These selfless acts showcase the commitment Sumterites have to lift up their family, friends and community.”

The City of Sumter recognizes these organizations in conjunction with Extra Mile America, the parent organization of “Extra Mile Day,” whose mission it is to celebrate the capacity we each have to create positive change in our community.
