HOG Day 2011

Our family has enjoyed serving in Greenville’s HOG (Hands On Greenville) Day the past couple of years. Grace Church got involved with this as a way to engage the culture, to have a positive impact on our city. This event is the largest single volunteer day in South Carolina each year; last year over 5000 volunteers each gave up 3+ hours of their time. It is estimated that this single day had an economic impact of about $500,000.

This year, there a plans for a group of folks from Allendale to come up to serve during HOG Day, on April 30. Last month, people from the Upstate (including adults and college students from Grace Church) served in an Allendale work day. We believe that just as Greenville has resources to offer Allendale, people in Allendale have resources that can Greenville. We looking forward to serving alongside new friends from Allendale!
