On behalf of Kids Planet, Leadership Greer would like to thank Citizens Building & Loan (CBL) for their donation of $2500. These funds, along with donations from other businesses, will go towards revitalizing the park in April of this year.
Citizens Building & Loan has been a cornerstone of Greer since 1907, giving the community over a century of friendly, hometown service. Additionally, CBL was established a charitable foundation in 1999 to support local non-profit and charitable entities in the Greer Area. To date, The Foundation has awarded over $300,000 to organizations such as the Greer Community Ministries, Greer Relief, Visions of Excellence, Greer Christian Learning Center, Greer Soup Kitchen, Joshua’s Way, Kids Planet and others.
The CBL offices are located in historic downtown Greer at 229 Trade St. Also, www.cblgreer.com for more information on the many services their customers enjoy.
In March 1999 a group of 3000 volunteers came together to build Kids Planet park. The park is a wonderful recreation spot for children of all ages and abilities. Ten years and thousands of children later the park needs a revitalization. In keeping with the tradition of the Park’s volunteer-based construction, we would like to extend an invitation to public volunteers to undertake this project. Although the park will not require as much work as it did at inception, we need as many volunteers as possible to restore the Park to the beauty we remember from spring of 1999. In the well-known spirit of Greer community service, please help us keep this special Greer landmark in good condition. Any contribution, whether physical or monetary, will be greatly appreciated for generations to come.
