Art on Display: Young artists illustrate “My Dream Summer Vacation.”

February 5th, 2016 by Catherine James

Starting February 5, visitors to the Greer Branch will be treated to a mini art gallery in the branch lobby. The credit union invited students in the Communities in Schools (CIS) after-school program at near-by Chandler Creek Elementary to help brighten up the space while it is undergoing construction. More than 35 children submitted pieces with the theme “My Dream Summer Vacation” for display in the gallery. All artists received $5 Chick Fil A gift cards for their efforts and the credit union donated all art supplies to the after-school program for the project.

“Greenville Federal Credit Union is grateful to these students for helping turn our lobby into a beautiful gallery during renovations” said Greer Branch Manager, Robert Wright. “It’s been really fun for the credit union team to interact with the kids and see what they envision for a perfect summer vacation.”

The gallery will be on display at our Greer Branch through the first week of March. First place winners for the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade programs will be selected from the works submitted and announced before the show’s end.

The credit union appreciates Chandler Creek Elementary School, Communities in Schools, Chic Fil A of Greer and our credit union volunteers for supporting this fun project.
