Lunch and Learn Series   

Our lunch and learn series is a way for our community to get to know one another just a little bit better. Speakers from throughout the region will present interesting stories, facts and ideas followed by questions and discussions over lunch. Favorite Spartanburg lunch spots will cater a box lunch each week. Make sure to sign up by Monday at noon before the Thursday event to reserve your box lunch. Sign up for one, four or all of our Lunch and Learn speakers to learn even more about this wonderful community we live in.

    Homeless in Spartanburg: Who, Why, Where, What Now. In Spartanburg, who are our homeless citizens? Why are they homeless? Where do they abide? What do we do about the homeless in Spartanburg? Dr. Burnette spent 30 years housing and treating homeless veterans across the nation for the US Department of Veteran Affairs. Upon returning home to Spartanburg he has volunteered for the past 15 years to reach out to the homeless community attempting to find housing and treatment for all. Under bridges, in parking garages, in abandoned structures, in deep woods where they “stay," their stories of daily living are both tragic and inspiring. Let’s have a conversation about how we are or are not “our brothers' keepers."
