Leadership Greer Class XXXII Announces Class Project
February 14, 2012
Each year the Leadership Class chooses a project that will benefit the Greer Community or an entity within the community. Leadership Greer Class XXII is made up of 18 business professionals in our community ranging from school principals, city officials, and bankers to employees at Mitsubishi, a police officer, small business owners and many others. This year, Class XXXII has chosen to help the efforts of the Disabled American Veterans, Greer Chapter 39. The Greer chapter of DAV is in need of a mobile booth, much like a mobile Pepsi Booth you would see at Greer events. The purpose of this mobile booth would be to display and store DAV information packets, brochures and like items for recruitment of new members and to provide knowledge to former service men and women about filing claims with the Veteran’s Administration.

The mobile booth, after coordination with the City of Greer and/or the Greer Chamber of Commerce, will be parked along the street during city events and festivals to promote the Disabled American Veterans. Once this mobile booth is purchased through the class project, the DAV Greer chapter 39 will store and maintain the unit.
Greer Leadership Class XXXII needs to raise about $25,000 for the purchase and up fitting of this mobile booth. This chapter assists veterans and their families throughout Greer and the Upstate. An ongoing project of this chapter is to send children of disabled and deceased veterans to Golden Corral’s Camp Corral each summer and any excess funds raised would help in this effort as well. The fundraiser will be announced very soon, but the class would gladly receive donations for this most worthy project.
