Carolina Foothills Federal Credit Union recently awarded The Lion Soccer Academy $2,500 as part of the credit union’s micro community grant program. The funds will be used to purchase a new soccer goal for their program. The Lion Soccer Academy was established in the summer of 2015 with the goal of using sport to address the issues impacting our community. They strive to offer an affordable alternative to delinquent activities while encouraging social interaction, healthy lifestyle, and community integration.
Carolina Foothills recently awarded Upcountry History Museum $2,500 as part of the credit union’s micro community grant program. Upcountry History Museum will use the funds to support a new exhibit: the Jerry Pinkney Imaginings exhibit. Imaginings features over 100 watercolors and sketches, as well as interviews, objects and memorabilia that reflect the artist’s love of literature and his process of creating meaningful visual solutions that expand and enliven a narrative.
Carolina Foothills Federal Credit Union recently awarded the Habitat for Humanity of Spartanburg $2,500 as part of the credit union’s micro community grant program. Habitat for Humanity will use the funds to support their annual Women’s Build Week, an event that encourages the women in our community to participate on build sites. Habitat for Humanity works with volunteers, community organizations, and families in need to provide affordable home ownership. The program is designed to eliminate substandard housing and promote financial stability in Spartanburg.
Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County seeks to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. We believe that affordable homeownership is foundational for creating family stability, ensuring academic success for children and eliminating generational poverty.
When we think about the work Habitat Spartanburg has done during this past year, we think about HOPE. The HOPE we’ve given families who had before seen no way out of substandard, or government housing. We need your help. Please consider giving we can continue building dreams — and HOPE.
We are the Northside Development Group, a diverse group of people investing time, skills, and dollars for a safe and strong Northside Community. We serve to encourage and manage the redevelopment of the City of Spartanburg’s Northside community, honoring its past and expanding the economic, educational, recreational, health, and social opportunities for its residents.
