Throughout the entire year, but especially during the holidays, the owners of Greystone Properties encourage our employees to “Pay it Forward” in their respective communities. In keeping with our holiday tradition, in addition to giving every Greystone employee $50.00 to “Pay it Forward”, the owners of Greystone Properties also made the decision to invest in a man who gives back not only during the holiday season, but also throughout the year to children in need.

Local hero and owner of East Coast Body Shop on Farr Road, Chester Jackson, just completed his fourth annual Wishing Well Foundation bicycle giveaway.

As part of the giveaway, he built, repaired, and distributed 1,000 bikes to children in the Columbus community. Greystone Properties donated 40 new bikes at a cost of $2,500 towards his worthy cause.

All of the 1,000 bikes were given at no cost to children 4 to 14 years of age on a first come first served basis. Greystone Properties is proud to support Chester in his mission, and we’re not the only ones doing so. Most recently the Today show along with many other community members donated bikes and/or their time to his cause.

"Hate freezes the heart, but love warms the heart. So we're just sharing these items of love to the children,” - Chester Jackson.
