Delivery for Layette

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!

Giving A Helping Hand At RMH Telethon

Although Service League of Greenville members are currently on summer break, when a helping hand is needed for the second annual Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina Telethon we find a way to be there.

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.

Getting To Know You…

As a fun way for members to “meet & greet” their fellow volunteers, Service League of Greenville 2nd Vice President Danette Pugh has been finding creative disguises to chat up randomly selected members during our monthly meetings…

Donations Of Quick Meals To Ronald McDonald House

Quick meals are in high demand at The Ronald McDonald House located inside the James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital at Vidant Medical Center (near the pediatric units).

When a child is sick and receiving medical attention, the last thing families need is the added stress of worrying about how or where to grab something quick and nutritious to eat without having to leave the building where their child is being treated. Fortunately, the Ronald McDonald House provides a 2,500 sq.ft. common area with kitchen, laundry, and shower facilities, a playroom and other home-like amenities.

But, keeping the pantry full is an ongoing challenge.

During our October meeting, the Service League of Greenville held a last minute “Quick Meal Drive” to help the Ronald McDonald House restock their quick meals pantry.  We are pleased to say, our members exceeded expectations:

Helping to unload the Service League of Greenville’s quick meal donations are RMH Eastern NC’s Director of Development, Hanna Caton, and Executive Director, Meghan King Woolard.

A huge thank you to all the SLG members who participated and gave so generously!
