Greer Relief closed out its Adopt a Family pickups last week serving over 500 families.

Caroline Robertson, Executive Director for Greer Relief, said the number of families served is less than the more than 700 in 2012. “That could be good because there are less families needing help or that some families are being served by other agencies,” Robertson said.

Cops for Tots reached out to 300 families one week earlier in the Greer Police Department’s annual toy drive and distribution.
