Greenville Technical Charter High Students Serve Their Local Community

On Jan. 12th, all 435 Greenville Tech Charter High (GTCHS) students will fan out across the county to participate in their annual Serve Day event. Each year, GTCHS students fulfill 50 hours of service, and Serve Day opens up the opportunity for the students to help serve local businesses and organizations.

Students will participate in Serve Day activities from 12:15-2:15 pm on Friday, January 12th to help organizations such as Serenity Place, Harvest Hope, Safe Harbor Thrift Store, Greenville Zoo, and Pendleton Place to name a few.

Annika Samuel, a senior, explains the school “is known for its students' devotion to community service. SERVE Day is a perfect way for our students to reach out to local nonprofits in Greenville and lend a helping hand, amplifying our reach and improving our community engagement.”
