Taylorsville Business Receives Grant from Sam’s Club, SCORE

Press Release

January 4, 2013

Anchor Water Damage & Restoration in Taylorsville was one of 102 businesses chosen nationwide to be a part of the Sam’s Club Giving Program, in collaboration with national non-profit SCORE, to provide more than $500,000 in supplies, training and holiday spirit to small businesses.

The grant to SCORE will provide each business owner with access and travel to a two-day educational event to help them implement strategies to grow their business. The grant will also fund three regional educational workshop events in 2013 hosted by SCORE for any small business in those regions. Each business will receive a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card in addition to training through SCORE.

Combined, these events aim to reach over one thousand small businesses. The 102 small businesses in the Sam’s Club Holiday Giving campaign were chosen in part by local SCORE chapters based on each business’s need and commitment to ongoing learning and growth.

“Working with SCORE has provided a foundation to help my business grow,” said Kris Rudarmel, owner of Anchor Water Damage & Restoration. “The access to tools for my business from Sam’s Club, SCORE and the additional training will really help me take my business to the next level.”

“Our collaboration with SCORE allows Sam’s Club to provide the tools and goods that small business owners need to enter the New Year with increased confidence and optimism,” said John Boswell, senior vice president of marketing, member insights and ecommerce for Sam’s Club.

The businesses were selected by SCORE based on each business’ need and commitment to ongoing learning and growth. SCORE will use the grant from Sam’s Club to sponsor a two-day “High Speed Growth Seminar.” The grant will also fund continued regional and local training for these businesses with SCORE mentors.  

“Small businesses truly are the backbone of our economy, particularly during lean times,” said W. Kenneth Yancey, Jr., CEO, SCORE.  “With the support of Sam’s Club this holiday season, these small businesses will be in a position to take the critical next step in their evolution.”
