LEAD Greenville gives the community an opportunity to say a week long thank you to all law enforcement personnel in Greenville County including Greenville, Greer, Travelers Rest, Mauldin, Simpsonville & Fountain Inn. We ask that businesses, organizations, and citizens rally together for the week of May 14-18, 2018 to show their appreciation by offering a daily drawing prize or hosting a drop in at your office or offering a discounted service/coupon. This appreciation week will be a great way to thank those who put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve us.

Local merchants, businesses, restaurants and organizations will be able to participate by donating a daily prize drawing, hosting a drop by appreciation event, or posting a discounted service or product coupon or certificate they wish to make available to law enforcement personnel during this week along with an optional note/post of appreciation.

We are encouraging all local individuals, schools, merchants, businesses, & organizations to join us for 'Go Blue' Greenville on Friday, May 18 to show our unified appreciation for our local Law Enforcement Community. Some ideas - wear a blue shirt/blouse/scarf; promote and add 'Go Blue Greenville' badge (download here) on your social media, menus or displays for the day, several teachers/schools/pre-schools are doing art projects/thank you posters to display and give to their school enforcement officers/staff. #GoBlueGreenville
