The goal for the campaign to endow the Abbeville Promise scholarship program is $1.2 million. The purpose of Operation Impact is to emphasize the development of leaders and role models, to encourage individual and group achievement, to provide recognition and support of educational and social programs, and to bring about unity and fellowship of men with like vision throughout Abbeville County.
