Press Release:

    GREENVILLE, NC     Kick off the Holiday Season with holly jolly celebrations at the return of Greenville Gives to Five Points Plaza on Friday, December 3rd. The City's annual tree lighting and kick off to the season of giving will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and is hosted by the City of Greenville and Uptown Greenville.

    The tree lighting, reading of a holiday story, the opportunity to give back to non-profit organizations and the annual Holiday Market all return this year. This event also brings back holiday cheer with seasonal music and performances, rides on the Emerald Express, holiday crafts, and time for hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows.

    The event will have safety measures in place to help reduce spread of COVID-19, including safely-distanced activity stations, a larger event footprint to prevent over-crowding, and sanitizer stations throughout the event.

    Greenville Gives will feature a central collection site for donations where those dropping off gifts will be greeted by the "Dude in the Red Suit." Donations are not required for the Sit with Santa photo-op.

    Donations will be distributed to the following non-profit organizations: The Salvation Army through Greenville Fire and Rescue Operation Santa Claus, The Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC, the Pet Food Pantry, and Greene Lamp Community Action (supporting JOY Soup Kitchen, Community Crossroads, and Pitt County Veterans Services). Donation items include paper products, dental hygiene items, small bath essentials, non-perishable foods, cat and dog food, adult hygiene items, socks, gloves, winter hats, and toys.
