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!
Service League members gathered items that were donated at Pugh’s Tire on Dickinson Avenue on Tuesday, Sept 18. Grifton is currently experiencing major flooding and loss of power due to Hurricane Florence this past weekend.
There was a great outpouring from the members and the community. All the items have been loaded and delivered to Grifton Mission Ministries. Thanks to everyone!
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 American Cancer Society’s McConnell-Raab Hope Lodge is a temporary “home away from home” for cancer patients to stay while they are going through cancer treatments in Greenville. Since its doors opened in 2002, The Service League of Greenville has provided strong service support for the Hope Lodge.
Our own Brenda Edwards was the first to greet guest when the doors opened in 2002 and she has been a dedicated volunteer ever since.
Most weekdays there is a Service League member working the front reception desk greeting guests and answering phones. We also help with set-up and clean-up during special events, and many members drop off homemade desserts or hearty dishs for guests to enjoy during their stay and are especially welcome during holidays.
Service League of Greenville members gave nearly 200 hours of service to Hope Lodge in the month of April.
At The Hope Lodge’s 16th Annual Reunion, The Service League of Greenville was honored as “Group Volunteer of the Year”. From Katrina Combs, Hope Lodge Manager:
A big THANK YOU to all the members of the Service League of Greenville for their many hours of service and their many YEARS of service. We are so very grateful for your support in our mission to offer temporary housing when guests receive cancer treatment in our area. The dessert selection at our event was the tastiest, most delightful we’ve ever served.
Hope Lodge chair Betty LeRoux, along with Cassie Causey and Donna Moore, accepted the award on behalf of all Service League of Greenville members.
We’d like to add our thanks to all our members for their ongoing dedication and support of Hope Lodge. And, a special SLG THANK YOU to Katrina Combs and the American Cancer Society for providing such a warm and welcoming “home away from home” to cancer patients visiting our community.

We have a very special #VidantThankYou to the Service League of Greenville. They donated sodas to stock our inpatient hospice house kitchen for our patients, their families and visitors to enjoy. Words cannot express how much comfort something like this can bring to our families.

Our thanks to Angelina for the lovely posting, Martha for organizing this, and all who donated!!

Hope Lodge manager, Katrina Combs, and Hope Lodge Regional Manager, Sundi Herring, presented the award to Becky Brittle, our Hope Lodge Chairwoman, on behalf of all our members.
The members of the Service League of Greenville, Inc. are dedicated volunteers who have served the McConnell-Raab Hope Lodge since we opened our doors in 2002. Members have generously given of their time and talents at the front desk each day of the week for the past 15 years. They bake tasty desserts for our annual reunions and look for ways to serve the cancer patients and caregivers of Hope Lodge on a daily basis. This year, they helped us spruce up our outdoor seating areas by sponsoring the making of beautiful teal colored cushions.
Working the front desk…
