We Care

On Friday, May 20, 2022, Upper Savannah Care Services (USCS) participated in the GLEAMNS annual community action day. At this event, USCS set up a table along with others that participated in this community action to network and raise awareness to our agency. USCS’s intent is to make the community aware of the services that we provide and to collaborate with other like-minded agencies. GLEAMNS Human Resources Commission, Inc. is a member of the network, which consists of 1,000-plus Community Action Agencies working across the country to help low-income people and families. To celebrate Community Action and raise awareness, GLEAMNS celebrated its annual Community Action Day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 20 at the James Medford Family Event Center Piedmont Technical College. This was a contactless drive-thru event. Lunch was provided, along with community resource bags highlighting services offered throughout the nine counties, which was hosted by The GLEAMNS Community Services department.
