Local students assist with food and service needs amidst the COVID surge

January 17, 2022

On Friday, January 14, over 450 Greenville Technical Charter High School (GTCHS) students will participate in their annual Serve Day event, volunteering at more than 20 local businesses and organizations across Greenville County. Students will partner with multiple organizations including Harvest Hope, Greenville Literacy Association, Miracle Hill, and Greenville Homeless Alliance to assist them as needed. One class of seniors will continue their four year legacy project with the Friends of the Reedy River to help with river cleanup using kayaks and canoes to clean difficult to reach areas.

As part of the school’s annual Serve Day, the students also held a food drive to benefit the following local food pantries: Harvest Hope, United Ministries, S.H.A.R.E., and Miracle HIll Food Warehouse.  So far, the students have collected more than 2,500 canned food items and the drive continues through Thursday.

Giving back to the community is vital to the mission and vision of GTCHS.   Serve Day is an opportunity for the school to come together to help their community and is held annually the Friday before the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday.
