Leadership Greer Class 39 is asking for $50,000 in donations for funding sensory equipment to be installed at Chandler Creek Elementary.

“We are excited to be partnering with Chandler Creek Elementary School for our class project this year,” said Class 39 president Jeff Howard. “With your donation, we will be able to provide sensory paths, furnish a sensory room full of therapeutic resources, and install fencing to safely enclose the outside play area.”

The sensory paths will be installed outside in the play area as a ‘sensory oasis” for children who need to release energy and refocus for the school day. These one-of-a-kind outdoor sensory paths will be beneficial to all students, but especially children dealing with sensory processing disorders, ADHD, anxiety, and/or trauma.  The outdoor sensory paths will be accessible to all children in the community after school hours. 

Leadership Greer’s biggest fundraiser, the 15th Annual Oyster Roast (Shrimp Boil & Pig Pickin'), is Feb. 22 at 15-A Pelham Ridge Drive from 6 – 9 p.m. Tickets are $40 and available at the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce or call 864-877-3131.
