The Service League of Greenville’s sustaining membership have made the support of local Hurricane Matthew flood victims and Salvation Army a focus of their service work this year with a multi-effort approach.
In response to the flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew, sustaining members of the Service League of Greenville donated $500 from their treasury to the Salvation Army. The funds were earmarked for Pitt County residents impacted by the flooding.
After learning of additional needs of the flood victims, sustaining members hosted a membership wide “Coat Shower” to collect new and gently used coats during our general Service League meetings in November and December. One hundred coats were donated from active and sustaining members! Twenty children’s coats were delivered to South Greenville school and 80 adult coats were delivered to the Salvation Army!
Taking time from the holiday rush, Sustaining members organized a Service League bell ringing On Wednesday December 14 — ten sustaining and active members rang the bell for Salvation Army in front of Belks’ home store. Pictured below are (left to right) Laurie Charlton, Linda Harrington, Linda Seykora, Angel Mackensie, and Kim Sayers.
Keeping the momentum going into the new year and to help the Salvation Army stock their food panty for the high demand winter months, sustaining Service League members organized a membership wide canned goods “shower” to be held at our general meeting in January. Cash and non-perishable canned goods (especially meats) will be collected and delivered to the Salvation Army Food Pantry.
Huge thanks to all the members who participated and to the sustaining membership for their leadership in these efforts!
