Nearly a month after the first financial donation, Greer CPW is pledging an additional $25,000 to Greer Relief, an organization that works to prevent hunger and homelessness in the Greater Greer area. Among many other things, Greer Relief also provides utility assistance for people unable to pay their bill. These funds will be earmarked for that purpose.
“We quickly realized how dire the situation has become for our customers to pay their utility bills and keep essential services running, said Jeff Howell – Chairman of the Board. We are all in this together and with a little encouragement will get through these uncertain times.” said Howell.
Greer CPW first announced a $25,000 donation to Greer Relief March 16th and nearly 90% of those funds have already been used. Greer Relief Executive Director Caroline Robertson says they have seen repeat clients but ones that have never requested help before.
“We are blessed to have a great partner in Greater Greer who values the community and their customers. Thank you, Greer CPW, for providing much needed relief to our neighbors during the COVID crisis,” said Caroline Robertson, Executive Director of Greer Relief.
