Holiday Lights Light the Way to Giving

Greystone Court has long held the tradition of lighting the way to community giving. Canned goods are donated to our local community while everyone enjoys the lights. Consequently everyone helps feed the hungry in the community. Holiday spirit is felt throughout the court!

Access is a local organization that provides food, housing, warmth and essential services to low income individuals and families. Residents in Jackson County have been served by Access since 1976.

Greystone Court

Greystone is not the only event that The Human Bean and Access work together. Since 2010 The Human Bean has held an annual food drive that benefits Access. The event is held in August because this is typically the time of year that donations are at the lowest point.
