The Beatles refrain is true, “I get by with a little help from my friends.” On Saturday, September 10, the Mast Store will be hosting Friends in each of its home communities that have the awesome responsibility of taking care of resources that locals and visitors enjoy every day. At the end of the day, each of our store locations will donate 10% of the day’s sales to support our local conservation partners.

Friends-Day-Reedy-1.jpgThe Mast Store in Greenville will host our neighbor and partner Friends of the Reedy River. This conservation group works to protect the environment while supporting practical economic development. Their efforts over the last many years have been focused on the Saluda-Reedy River watershed resulting in the Reedy River’s health improving markedly. Part of the Swamp Rabbit Trail follows the Reedy.

The Reedy River has always been an integral part of Greenville. It provided water for early settlements, power for textile mills, and now, a beautiful place to enjoy a walk, a concert, or a Shakespearean play. Since 1993, the Friends of the Reedy River and other partners have worked diligently to restore the beauty and viability of this great river.
