The Green River Community Center/Boys and Girls Club hosted a Christmas dinner and fund raiser at their facility. Friends of the Green River Positive Action Team, or PACT, is a group of individuals who formed this organization to work towards positive community outcomes. Their goal is to raise funds to further the programs in the city which help Green River and its citizens.
