It was so busy and sales were flying off the shelf at the Vidant Main Gift Shop on Valentines Day. We had time to take only a few pictures in between the wrappings!

And of course our biggest event of the year, the Annual Charity Ball is on February 23, 2019. Chairs Theresa Warren and Marcia Pleasants and all the committee members are making the final details and decorations for “An English Country Garden”. It’s been reported that the Queen herself may be there! You wouldn’t want to miss it!
A delivery of 12 Layette bags was made on Nov 6 to both The Brody School of Medicine OB/GYN Department and Public Health Baby Love program. Another remaining 12 layette packages were delivered to Carolina Pregnancy on Wednesday. The organizations were extremely appreciative of the generosity from the members of the Service League of Greenville. The donated baby supplies and clothing will be distributed for use in our local community.
Thank you to Rita Galbraith for organizing the collection and delivery of these items!
Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina is an independent, community supported 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides a temporary “home-away-from-home” for families of children who are receiving treatment in our community’s medical facilities.
The Service League of Greenville continued its decades of support for the Children’s Miracle Network by working the phones during the 33rd annual telethon and delivering a donation for $5,000 on behalf of our members.
Over its 33 years, the CMN telethon has raised an impressive $27 million to fund everything from neo-natal medical equipment to special designed/educational books and toys. The Service League of Greenville has proudly contributed nearly $4 million of that total.
Our thanks to all who found some way to participate and/or contribute to CMN this year!
There was a tell-tale sea of blue and green smocks in the audience as Service League of Greenville President Annelle West took part in the ribbon cutting ceremony at the opening of Vidant Health’s new Cancer Center. The Cancer Center is an important part of improving wellness in Greenville and eastern North Carolina and The Service League of Greenville members are proud to be a part of its beginnings and providing ongoing support through our Hope and Caring Boutique and the Healing Gardens.
The new healing garden made the perfect backdrop for the presentation of our first payment of $300,000 to meet our $2 million pledge to Vidant Health Foundation for the new Cancer Center’s garden. Service League of Greenville President, Annelle West, along with Vice President, Ann Taylor; 2nd VP, Danette Pugh; and Past President, Mary Lee Hobbie presented the check to Phyllis DeAntonio, Administrator for Cancer Services at Vidant Medical Center.
The day was cool, but sunny as Service League of Greenville members enjoyed their first glimpse of the healing garden in Vidant Health’s new Cancer Center set to open this month.
Another great day to be a part of the Service League of Greenville!
