$900K goal reached and surpassed!

January 10, 2014

For what purpose did Oconeeans dig deep into their pockets and raise $900 thousand in one year’s time? The answer, as supplied this morning at the Oconee Sheriff’s Office, is the purpose of opening the county’s first shelter for the abused. In fact, thanks to a grant, the campaign to allow Safe Harbor of Greenville to open an Oconee shelter exceeded the goal. Businessman John Powell announced this morning the amount raised has climbed to $1,176,980 dollars. That announcement led to applause inside the Sheriff’s Office training room from some of the main players in the campaign. Those committed to the cause, such as Sheriff Mike Crenshaw, felt a pressure to act quickly considering a spate of murder-suicide.
