January 12, 2009

(Greer, SC)  Leadership Greer Class XXIX  is working to “Keep Greer Warm” through this winter season.  The project is accepting donations of blankets, throws, coats, non-perishable food items, and monetary gifts to benefit Greer Relief, Greer Community Ministries, and Middle Tyger Community Center.  Drop off locations include: BB&T on North Main Street, CapitalBank on West Wade Hampton Blvd., Greer City Hall, The Cottages at Brushy Creek, Greenville Tech Greer Campus, Greer Memorial Hospital, Greer Police Department, Home Helpers and Direct Link, Village at Pelham, and the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce.

On Saturday, January 31, 2009 Leadership Greer Class XXIX is holding a Community Bingo night from 3:00-6:00pm to help raise funds and donation items towards the project.  The event will be held at The Cottages at Brushy Creek Community Building, located at 101 Cottage Creek Circle, Greer, SC 29650. 

Bring your family, have some fun, and win some great prizes, all while benefiting a great cause.  Proceeds from this event will go towards the purchase of blankets, heaters, coats and other items needed to Keep Greer Warm this winter.

“With the current condition of the economy, many Greer residents are unable to meet basic needs, such as warm clothing and heat to help them through the winter. We, as a class, decided that helping those in need in our community was extremely important right now and decided to Keep Greer Warm as our class project,” said Brent Garrett, President of Leadership Greer Class XXIX.

For more information on the Leadership Greer Class XXIX project “Keep Greer Warm” please contact Ashley Crocker at (864) 809-4923 or acrocker@upstatewib.org.
