Greenville Chamber of Commerce Leadership leading the way in generosity.

The Greenville Chamber of Commerce Leadership Institute participated in a day to "Do Random Acts of Kindness" and choose to spread some of that kindness at the Shelter. Leadership Group B came with baskets in hand filled with blankets, towels, socks, hats and personal hygiene items. Leadership Group C brought some elbow grease and worked outside cleaning the grounds around the Shelter. Thank you to both groups and to the Chamber of Commerce.
