From Mary Jean R. in our Corporate Office in Greenville, SC:
“Love Taylors” Day kicked off at First Baptist of Taylors, SC bright and early on the morning of September 16th, with over 300 volunteers coming together for a day of serving our neighbors, building on-going relationships and sharing the love of Jesus throughout the Taylors community (between Greer and Greenville, SC). Using their gifts, skills, and passion, volunteers jumped in, ready to go to take on projects all up and down Main Street (overall, within a 2.8 mile radius of the church), including park beautification and clean-up, landscaping, home repairs, bike repairs, oil changing clinic, ladies financial workshop, prayer walking, just to name some of the many hands-on activities that took place throughout the day.
Our life group had the privilege of providing breakfast for the volunteers – 400 Chick-Fil-A chicken-minis, 100 chicken biscuits, 40 pounds of bananas, a bushel of locally picked apples, 15 pounds of clementines, 144 orange juices, 100 milks, nutrition/protein bars, water, and a lot of coffee. It all went off without a hitch! We are grateful for the day’s beautiful weather and especially for the collective heart of the people who were so willing to give of their time and talents towards making a difference in the life of our church’s community – Taylors, SC!
