Both Enmarket and Clyde’s Markets are involved with charitable organizations that give back to their local communities. This year, Clyde’s Market raised money for, among others, the Muscular Dystrophy Association and St. Jude’s Hospital. Enmarket held its annual Blood Cancer Awareness Month fundraiser in September for the local Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Combined, Enmarket and Clyde’s have raised more than $200,000 for charity this year.
Over the years, Enmarket’s fundraising efforts have included America’s Second Harvest Food Bank, the United Way, the Salvation Army, Partnership for a Healthier America, Chatham-Savannah Citizen Advocacy and the YMCA.
In recent years, Enmarket has also sponsored the Savannah River Bridge Run, an annual race in which participants run or walk over the Talmadge Bridge to benefit the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion at St. Joseph’s/Candler hospital. It also founded and is the ongoing title sponsor of the Encourage Health Series, which features four lunchtime presentations from professionals who share insights on nutrition, fitness and healthy living. In 2017, the series contributed money to the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia, The Living Vine, Savannah Striders and the Savannah Urban Garden Alliance.
For the past nine years, Clyde’s annual golf tournament has supported the U.S. Army’s 3rd Infantry Division at Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield in Georgia. Additional charities supported by Clyde’s include Joseph's Home for Boys, Paul Anderson Youth Home, the Pledger House, the Sunshine House, New Beginnings in Christ, The Glennville Recreation Department, The Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Southern Christian Sports Devotional.
