Greenville financial advisor Eddie Terrell was chosen by Northwestern Mutual as a 2020 Community Service Award recipient. He joins 15 other selected financial advisors who were honored by the company for their work to give back to their local communities.
As part of the award, Terrell received a $20,000 grant, which was given to Prisma Health Children’s Hospital-Upstate. He became involved with the children’s hospital after his two-year-old niece was diagnosed with leukemia.
“Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Upstate saved my niece’s life, and I’m forever grateful,” said Terrell. “Through our fundraising efforts, I want to pay it back and pay it forward to other families that need these life-saving services.”
As part of the 2020 Community Service Award, Northwestern Mutual donated more than $310,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations on behalf of the 16 financial advisors nationwide. Since 1995, the company has donated more than $6 million to nonprofits through this program.
