Greenville, SC – The Greenville Revitalization Corporation (GRC) received a $4,959 grant from Palmetto Pride to sponsor purchase and install trash receptacles along the
Mill Walk Trail and by the Children’s Playground at the Greenville Textile Heritage Park
in the Monaghan Community.
Steven Bryant, GRC Board Chairman stated: “The Textile Heritage Park is beginning
to be discovered by residents and visitors alike. As its use continues to grow and improvements continue to be made, we want to make the experience more enjoyable for visitors and environmentally friendly for the park and surrounding community. The addition of these new trash receptacles will accomplish both objectives. We look forward to partnering with Palmetto Pride and other organizations to create a great
park that will preserve the history of the Textile industry and the people who helped build Greenville,”
