“We appreciate the community involvement as well,” she said. “This is our way of giving back, as we celebrate this major milestone.”

According to Posey, the business opened with only about five employees and has expanded to employ 15.

Owner Jason Reaves said he is extremely proud of the hard work and dedication his team has shown. 

“We will never take for granted how much support we have been shown by our community,” Reaves said. “Five years is such a hard-earned milestone and we have worked tirelessly to achieve it. We didn’t want to be just another collision shop.”

As a gift to the community, Camellia Collision Center is giving away 100 backpacks, stuffed with school supplies and will draw names for door prizes every hour. Guests can enjoy hot dogs and burgers, and a bounce house for the children. 

Camellia Sweet Treats will also be on deck, serving up some delicious goodies. 

Reaves said he remembers being a little boy in Greenville and wishing he had new supplies for school. That memory helped to inspire the couple’s desire to celebrate the business anniversary by giving to their community.

“Giving back does my heart good, and keeps me grounded,” he said.

“We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” said Janet Reaves. “We couldn’t have done this without you, and the best is yet to come!”
