In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and legacy of service, United Way partnered with the City of Greenville, Greenville County’s Litter Ends Here and PalmettoPride to organize neighborhood cleanups across our community on Monday, Jan. 16.
Nearly 200 volunteers rolled up their sleeves to make an impact on MLK Day, spreading mulch and removing 9,920 pounds of trash from streets and community parks. Thank you to our site hosts at Brutontown Community Center, Mountain View Baptist Church, Oak Grove Lake Park, Phillis Wheatley Community Center and Staunton Bridge Community Center.
None of this would have been possible without the many hands of our volunteers. Thank you to every individual, family and group who came out to serve with us, including teams from the Greenville Drive, United Way’s African American Leadership (AAL), Drum Creative, USC Upstate School of Medicine, BMW and MAU Workforce Solutions, Gerber Childrenswear, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, GirlUp GVL, Furman University’s Women’s Basketball, Impact America, City of Simpsonville and Boy Scouts of America Troop 776.
