The Salvation Army of Greenville, Pickens and Oconee Counties raised $26,000 at its second annual fundraiser and banquet, Light the Path, on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2019. These funds will support the programs and services The Salvation Army provides throughout the year.
The Salvation Army serves individuals and families in need through a variety of services, such as a men’s rehabilitation program, emergency homeless shelters, the Boys & Girls Club of Greenville, rent and utility assistance programs and much more. Funds to support these year-round services come from grants, general donations, the Christmas red kettle campaign and special events, such as Light the Path.
“We feel so blessed by the generosity and compassion our community shows us every day,” says Major Andy Kelly, Area Commander of The Salvation Army of Greenville, Pickens and Oconee Counties. “But we are especially grateful for the giving we saw at our annual banquet, Light the Path. Because of our sponsors, donors and volunteers, Light the Path raised $26,000, which will help support the programs and services that touch the lives of more than 31,000 people each year.”
