United Way building to bear name of retiring president, Olivia Garren
United Way building to bear name of retiring president, Olivia Garren United Way of Horry County names its building after Olivia Garren, who is retiring after 39 years with the agency. THE SUN NEWS Olivia Garren Retires United Way CONWAY - Olivia Garren retired Wednesday as president of the United Way of Horry County and leaves behind a 39-year legacy as well as a building in her name. The agencys home was dedicated Wednesday as the Olivia F. Garren United Way Building, which was a surprise gift for Garren during a reception where she was celebrated by numerous community partners and friends. The building will feature a plaque with Garrens likeness, which expresses gratitude for her unwavering love for the people and communities of Horry County. This is too much I didnt expect this, Garren said. Its absolutely amazing and humbling. I cant put into words how I feel right now. Garren was born and raised in Horry County and has spent her whole life in Conway. She joined United Way of Horry County in 1975 as part-time secretary for its board, never imagining she would become the face of the agency and guide it for so many years. Shes just a hero to all the nonprofits, and her heart is as big as she is, said Jim Dumm, executive director of Tara Hall Home for Boys in Georgetown. Garren said she has mixed emotions about leaving the agency, but shes definitely excited, and that its time for new ideas and energy to come in. Garren had a ready response for well-wishers, who inevitably asked her, Whats next? Tomorrow, Im going to do nothing, she said, then Ill figure it out.
Were at 85 percent of our goal, and its very critical that we close that gap, said Olivia Garren, president of United Way of Horry County.
We have a committed group of volunteers who are working very hard, and we want people to realize how important this is, and if they havent already, they can still be a part of it. The organization has had years when it barely missed its goal but didnt have to reduce its allocations, said Garren, which is why her group is working hard to make up the difference this time around. Its just so critical that we are able to honor the allocations specified for 2013, she said. Garren said United Way already has conducted an initial phone blitz of potential donors and will follow up in the next week or two. She said there are people in the area who are in the habit of giving, and they want them to know they can still get in their contributions. The people in Horry County are so responsive to need, Garren said.
