For The Greer Citizen
If you are looking for Greer City Councilman Wayne Griffin on Christmas Eve, he will likely be at a store doing his last-minute Christmas shopping.
Procrastination is one of his Christmas traditions.
Because of community support, business donations and the efforts of the Greer Police Department, this year’s Cops for Tots program provided Christmas presents to more than 350 local children.
The program, which began more than 22 years ago, provides donated gifts to in-need children, ranging from newborns to 12 years olds.
The back seat and trunk of Onika Bradford’s car was packed down-- loaded with gifts, food and other items donated through Greer Relief to make her family’s Christmas brighter.
City’s offices closed
The City of Greer’s offices will be closed Thursday Dec. 24 and Friday Dec. 25. The offices will also close on Jan. 1.
In August, SLED and the FBI opened an investigation into alleged illegal video and audio recordings in Lyman Town Hall, after Lyman Town Council learned the surveillance equipment intended for security purposes had remote access and audio recording capabilities.
