Greenville Giving Trees have returned to Central Park and are
currently in need of donations.
Established in 2017 by Holly Patterson and her children, Catherine,
Joshua and Brianna, the Giving Trees are set up for anyone who is
walking through town to grab a dry hat, scarf or gloves/mittens to
keep out the cold. Seeing it for themselves, the Pattersons started
the idea to make sure that even the little thing like a dry pair of
gloves can make a difference for someone who is cold.
Items, including new or gently used but clean hats, gloves, mittens,
headbands, scarves and socks are needed to fill the trees. Donation
boxes have been set up at a number of locations including the Chamber
office, Steph's, Family Video, The Record-Argus lobby, Care-Fill
Pharmacy and the Greenville Fire Station.
If you are unable to make a purchase of items and put them onto the
trees, monetary donations will also be used to purchase items to keep
the trees filled as long as they are up.
For information, call or text Holly at 724-651-2951.
