(February 8th, 2021): Kiwanis Greenville Eastside Club donated $4,964 to Prince of Peace Catholic School as they were one of the top 3 vote getters in the “2020 Kids Need Kiwanis” Grant Program. The Grant program was offered by the Kiwanis Greenville Eastside club to the Terrific Kids Schools that Greenville Eastside Kiwanis sponsors. The schools provided us a school project that would provide a positive learning experience for their students. The schools applied and the voting information was given to each school. Prince of Peace Catholic School received over 81,000 votes to provide Chromebooks to help enhance learning in Math and Language Arts.
