In March, The Service League of Greenville donated a total of $12,000 to local nonprofits in our community. During a ceremony at Third Street Academy, Service League president Mary Lee Hobbie and projects chairwoman Barbara Bowser, with the help of Cookbook Chairwoman Charlot Emerson, presented $3,000 to each of four organizations: Third Street Academy, Salvation Army, Pitt County Council on Aging, and Community Crossroads Shelter.
All funds were generated through sales of our cookbook, DINING WITH THE LEAGUE — the tried and true recipes of Service League of Greenville Members. (Hint: It takes a lot of cookbook sales to make these donations happen.)
Kudos to Charlot and her cookbook committee for their determined efforts to get the last cookbook sold. Well done, Ladies! Thanks to all the members who worked hard to sell cookbooks and special thanks to retail outlets that made DINING WITH THE LEAGUE available to their customers.
Accepting donations from the Service League were Walter Strathy and Troy Milburn of the Third Street Academy, John Sikes of the Salvation Army, Christal Curran of the Pitt County Council on Aging, and Bob Williams of the Community Crossroads Shelter.
