I am extremely honored to have served on this organization's board for the past several years. Greer Relief is an outstanding organization that provides assistance to those in need around the greater Greer area. They provide all sorts of emergency assistance to those who have run into a problem in their life. The staff are fantastic at assessing the needs of the clients who come in and they will go the extra mile for any client in need.

At the heart of Greer, Greer Relief is there to provide support to those who need a hand to help them back to their feet. Greer is a great place to live and work, and the quality and caring of a community shines through with how we treat those in need. We are finding more and more, those in need who never expected to every ask for a helping hand. I encourage people to get involved, lend a helping hand and in doing so you will discover the heart of a community at Greer Relief. Tim Lincolnhol

Serving on the Board for the Greer Relief Agency has been a wonderful experience. We help those who unexpectedly fall on hard times financially. That could be any of us! That's why this agency is so important. We have several fundraiser a from a Kansas City Sanctioned BBQ competition, to a Golf for Relief event, and a St. Patrick's Day Dance. Their entire community comes out for these events to help us raise the money desperately needed to help our clients. We have a food pantry that we work to keep stocked with outreach t our schools, businesses, churches, the Food Postal Drive, and volunteers. We never turn anyone away when their need is food. We have a wonderful Christmas project, too. People in our community adopt a families and then supply these families with Christmas gifts they otherwise would not have. I love seeing the smiles on the kids' faces when they come on "Pick-up" day to get their gifts. These are just a few of the gifts and services we provide to our clients. The most important is the emergency financial aid in rent, mortgage, and utilities. Without our assistance, many families would otherwise have no heat, food, or shelter. Greer Relief is a blessing to our community for sure. Lynne Grout

I am on the board for Greer Relief and have been involved with the Sooie't Relief KCBS BBQ event for the past couple of years. All of the proceeds above cost go to help the clients of Greer Relief. The unusual thing about this event is that the not for profit runs the event! Many events benefit a not for profit but they are not hands on and explaining the good work that is done in the community to the attendees. I think this really makes us stand apart, it is a great feeling to speak with an event attendee and explain to them all the ways that Greer Relief helps people in the area. We are very lucky to live in such a great community that looks after each other. It is an honor to be part of this legacy (we celebrated our 75th anniversary this year!).

I am relatively new to the Greer community, and one of my first experiences here was to attend a fundraiser for Greer Relief. I learned all about this organization's dedication to the community, and I was greatly impressed. Greer Relief to me shows that this community truly cares about its own, even those who are perhaps a bit down on their luck. I feel it is so important for any community to reach out to those in need, and without such organizations a community suffers. To me, Greer Relief is a vital part of the city.

Greer Relief is very dear to my heart. I once fell on hard times and went to Greer Relief for assistance. My experience there was very positive and the staff treated me with the utmost kindness and respect. I had never been to such and organization and was a bit nervous and perhaps even a bit embarrassed. However, everyone I met that day made me feel right at home and very much at ease. I was so impressed with the level of service I received at Greer Relief that I made a vow to myself that I would try, in some way, to give back once I got back on my feet. Since then, I've been able to help the Agency with several fundraisers and food drives. Greer Relief's staff and high level of caring for our community inspired me to give back to an organization which helps so many. The Agency's client-base and needs grow year by year and I, for one, am so grateful that our community has Greer Relief to turn to in times of need. Thank you Greer Relief!
