Community Support
Your Columbia, SC Realtor

Mel Coker, Kelly and Barbara Thanks for visiting my Columbia/Chapin/Irmo/Lake Murray/Lexington Real Estate web site. I would be pleased to assist you with any real estate needs you may have. I promise you quality and courteous service (with no pressure). SERVICE Is Everything!

Mel Coker believes in Community Support...
I am a life-long resident of the Greater Columbia area. I have been blessed in my life and in my real estate business. I believe that support of worthwhile charitable organizations in my local community and our nation is a privilege and necessity.

I have listed the organizations that I support (all financially and some with personal involvement also). I invite you to support your favorite charities or investigate supporting some of the very worthwhile organizations below.

Chapin Baptist Church
My church located in Chapin, SC. Mission: We exist to help others connect with God and become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Clothe A Child
Started locally at Chapin Baptist Church as a community charitable service. The program provides $100 in clothing assistance at the start of the school year for 100-110 local school children with financial need. The shopping event is hosted locally by Goody's. Funding efforts and the hosting volunteers are supplied by members at Chapin Baptist Church. The program is designed to assist financially strapped families and help raise children's self-esteem.

Komen for the Cure of Breast Cancer Susan G. Komen For The Cure
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. RE/MAX International is a major supporter of this organization and I support it myself with my own donations.

Tim Malchak Ministries
I met Tim Malchak at Hilton Head Island and have followed his career and ministry since that time. Tim is a great songwriter and singer! Tim uses his music ministry at his local church, other churches, in the community and in his prison ministry. Visit Tim's website to learn more and buy his music.

Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

Riverbanks Zoo & Garden
One of America's Top Zoos! If you visit Columbia, be sure to visit the Zoo. If you live in the Greater Columbia area, consider joining the Riverbanks Zoo Society.

Columbia Historic Homes Columbia Historic Foundation
I sell Columbia homes and I am honored to support the preservation of historic Columbia homes through my membership in the Columbia Historic Foundation. The mission of the Historic Columbia Foundation is to nurture, support and protect the historical and cultural heritage of Columbia and its environs through programs of advocacy, education and preservation. Four Historic House Museums are the primary focus of the education and preservation program: Hampton-Preston Mansion & Gardens; Mann-Simons Cottage; Robert Mills House & Park; Woodrow Wilson Family Home.

Lake Murray Association
One of the BEST lakes in the entire South... Lake Murray! The Lake Murray Association (LMA) provides representation for all lake users from the four counties around the lake on issues that pertain to the development, management and use of Lake Murray. The Association works to foster cooperation among the various users and organizations with an interest in the lake to insure a clean, safe, and user-friendly lake.

Representative Nathan Ballentine
Okay... we really need good government. Representative Ballentine represents the district where my office is located. When I find a worthwhile candidate or politician, I believe we need to support them to promote good government. Ready for change in politics? Find good candidates, support them and be sure to VOTE!
