Safe Harbor is an organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence in South Carolina through prevention, intervention and transformation.
Greenville Country Club held two holiday events to benefit Safe Harbor: the second annual Club Holiday Drop-In and the first annual Reindeer Run. More than $1,000 in cash, $450 in gift cards for Safe Harbor clients, and several boxes of Christmas and winter items were collected and donated to Safe Harbor by Greenville Country Club members and staff.
“Safe Harbor is thrilled and honored to benefit from the Greenville Country Club’s holiday giving initiative,” said Becky Callaham, Executive Director of Safe Harbor. “The donations and gift cards will help in providing a hopeful Christmas to the clients and children whom we serve, and the monetary gifts will be vital in maintaining and strengthening Safe Harbor’s mission throughout 2014.”
Safe Harbor is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence in South Carolina through prevention, intervention and transformation. The second annual Holiday Drop-in, hosted December 3, encouraged attendees to donate material items useful to the organization such as winter gloves and scarves, pajamas, gift cards, and other essentials that are in short supply during this time of year. On December 14, GCC held its first ever Reedy View Reindeer Run, where members could walk or run the front nine holes of the Riverside course with a donation to Safe Harbor.
“We are all so fortunate to have a warm roof over our heads, family and friends to share the holidays, and a sense of security that, sometimes, we may take for granted,” said Greg Hobbs, General Manager. “The women and children at Safe Harbor don’t have those everyday luxuries. It is up to us, and to the community as a whole, to feel safe and cared for this holiday season and beyond. Our club hopes that these gifts will make a positive impact, and we are delighted to serve as a community partner in giving to Safe Harbor.”
