More than 500 volunteers give back on LIVE UNITED Day

10/07/2016

More than 500 community volunteers came together Friday to complete approximately 30 service projects for United Way of Greenville County’s inaugural LIVE UNITED Day.

Teams of volunteers from local companies participated by donating an afternoon of service at United Way funded partners and programs. Volunteers participated in a wide range of projects, including youth mentoring, afterschool education, gardening, food drives and more.

“LIVE UNITED Day gives people a great opportunity to get first-hand, personal experience with the work we’re doing to build a Cycle of Success in our community,” said Ted Hendry, president of United Way of Greenville County. “In addition to the projects we were able to complete, LIVE UNITED Day builds a tremendous sense of community spirit in Greenville County.”

Teams celebrated their accomplishments with an after-party hosted by Thomas Creek Brewery.
