Greenville Resource Center move is on hold

By Meg Upon

   The Rebuilding Greenville Resource Center (RGRC) plan to move out of the Crescent Hotel is on temporary hold. It is still open and operating at the Crescent Hotel.

   The center is no longer taking deliveries of donations, nor is it taking firewood applications at Crescent Mills RV and Boat Storage.

   The center is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

   On Tuesday, Jan. 25, however the staff and volunteers will be attending a “Trauma-Informed Services” training that will aid them in helping Dixie Fire survivors. The center will be open 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
