2nd Annual Volunteer Greer Day set April 18th
February 18, 2009
(Greer, SC) The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Leadership Greer Alumni Association, is proud to announce the continuation of the Volunteer Greer Day. The event will be held on April 18, 2009 from 8am – 12pm.
Volunteers will get outdoors, get their hands dirty, improve local parks and make an impact on the Greer Community on Saturday, April 18, 2009!
The day is a Chamber-coordinated initiative dedicated to encouraging Greer citizens to give back to the Greer community by volunteering for a variety of service projects throughout the city. The idea to involve the community in a volunteerism project was the class project of Leadership Greer Class XXVII. It was decide after a successful 2008 Volunteer Greer Day to make this an annual event. Over 10 different Greer specific projects were handled last year by over 150 community volunteers. The Greer Chamber of Commerce envisions this being a bigger success in 2009.
Volunteer Greer Day Co-Chair Jim Boyd said, "Volunteer Greer Day is a great way to make an impact on the City of Greer. We are looking to build on the successes of last year’s event and the impact it had. There is simply no better way to give back to the Greer community than by taking a day to participate in a volunteer activity and get your hands dirty for a good cause."
Dozens of projects have been planned and everyone in the surrounding Greer area is encouraged to participate. Projects range from painting projects for local non-profits to parks being cleaned and working with a Habitat House.
