The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Florence class is forging ahead despite the COVID-19 pandemic with its service project this year. Members have benefited in many ways from participating in Leadership Florence. Some have had to restrict their attendance to Zoom while others have had limited interaction. The 2020-2021 class is working on a “Helping Florence Bounce Back” donation drive. The donation drive continues until May 21 and is the class project for this year’s Leadership Florence group. The class has collection bins at more than 70 locations throughout Florence to collect everything from personal hygiene items to school supplies. The supply drive will culminate in a Leadership Day of Service from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 22, at First Presbyterian Church, located at 700 S. Park Ave.
