WHAT WE DO
The LEAD Upstate goal is to bridge the community and law enforcement together in the name of appreciation and gratitude. LEAD Upstate gives the community an opportunity to say thank you to all the law enforcement personnel in Greenville County including Greenville, Greer, Traveler’s Rest, Mauldin, Simpsonville, & Fountain Inn. Our sponsors are honored to host this event to the men and women who courageously dedicate their lives to serve the citizens of their communities every day.
HOW CAN LOCAL MERCHANTS, BUSINESSES, RESTAURANTS, & ORGANIZATIONS PARTICIPATE?
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, product, coupon or certificate they wish to make available to law enforcement personnel. Law enforcement personnel will have the opportunity to see what offerings and discounted products or services will be available to them from merchants.
