HOGHands on Greenville Day
On Saturday, May 1, O'Neal team members lent a hand to the community in the 16th Annual Hands on Greenville Day.  This year's "HOG" Day was the largest to date - 5,427 community volunteers teamed up to complete service projects throughout the Greenville community.
O'Neal's project benefited the Greenville County Disabilities and Special Needs Board (GCDSNB).  GCDSNB is the only agency in Greenville County that supports over 2,000 special needs citizens through person-centered programming.   This year's HOG Day project involved replacing a deck and ramp for GCDSNB's Greer Community Training Facility.  Led by Bob Jacob, the team provided the labor and tools necessary to complete the project.
