After the COVID-19 pandemic ravished the world with illness, death, and hardships, many people were left to scramble for resources to help them gain a sense of balance and normalcy. One of the City of Greenville’s goals is to continuously meet the dire needs of its citizens to alleviate the hardships that resulted from worldwide disasters.
With the assistance of individuals in the community, the City of Greenville can achieve this goal. For additional information, please contact Nikki Landrum, Kyla Rice, or Lauren Bell in the Mayor’s Office at 662-378-1501.
