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
