A substantial boost to the Northside Initiative.
The Northside Initiative received a substantial boost from Milliken & Co. in the form of volunteers and a contribution of $250,000. Milliken, with its dedication to Spartanburg as a whole, held a volunteer-day during its annual company meeting. The efforts serve to support the financial contribution Milliken made earlier. Volunteers were spread out around the community. Projects included building a community garden at the Healthy Food Hub, working on a Habitat for Humanity home, and landscaping projects.
Director of Milliken's public affairs, Richard Dillard, stated that the company “wanted to back up [their] financial commitment with hands-on support”. The support of Milliken demonstrates the continued efforts of area companies, organizations, and leaders to ensure the success of the Northside Initiative.
