Upstate group does “Christmas in July” for charity


GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – One Upstate group is gathering items to help the community.

The group is called ABATE, and they collected items today at the Greenville Shrine Club to help the Julie Valentine Center.

This is a non-profit organization that helps victims of sexual assault and child abuse and their families.

ABATE stands for A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments.

The group promotes motorcycle awareness and motorcycle rider training.

Today’s collection event was the second of four events slated for this year.

“Today we were looking for things to help the JV Center in their office. You know, just general office supplies and trash bags and things like that,” said Melody Rahall. “We take whatever donations that they have on their wish list. We encourage people to go and look at their wish list and bring what’s on their wish list.”

ABATE adopted the JV Center as their main charity, so they are raising donations for them.
