Greer Community Ministries teams with SERVPRO of East Greenville County for a School Supply Drive.
SERVPRO of East Greenville County has partnered with Greer Community Ministries, a local non-profit that provides services to those in need in Greer, SC. GCM follows the philosophy that “no elderly, homebound or disadvantaged person in the Greater Greer area will go hungry,” and has several programs to support their goals. These include a Meals on Wheels kitchen that served almost 90,000 hot and fresh meals, a food pantry and a clothing closet.
GCM also works to provide families in need with school supplies, and this year they have a goal of providing at least 500 children with supplies they need to start off the school year. Children within the Greenville and Spartanburg County school districts can come by GCM’s location at 738 S. Line St. Ext. in Greer with proof of residency and registration for grades 1-12 to pick up supplies every Monday – Friday until August 17. They are also accepting supplies and cash donations at the location or via their website. Saturday, August 4, GCM is hosting the Benson Classic Car Show in Greer from 10 am until 2 pm.
Where SERVPRO of East Greenville County comes in, is that our office is a drop off location for school supplies Monday – Friday 8.30 am until 4.30 pm until Thursday, August 16. Every person that drops off a new, unused bookbag at our location will be entered into a random drawing the week of August 24. The prizes include a Tasting Tour for Two from 6&20 Distillery.; event passes from Frankie’s Fun Park or a three-room carpet cleaning from us (a big thanks to our prize sponsors btw.)! So, donate and make yourself feel great and maybe win a prize to boot.
We take pride in giving back to our community and working with Greer Community Ministries.
