Springs Close Spotlight

Springsteen and Springs Close Fight Hunger

Legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen brought more than just a great concert to our community last fall. He also brought $50,000 to fight hunger — matched by another $50,000 from the Springs Close Foundation. The $100,000 gift went to Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to support hunger relief efforts in Chester, Lancaster and York Counties in South Carolina.

The Legacy of Giving Back

Welcome to The Springs Close Foundation. Built from the prosperity of the Springs Textile Mills and driven by Colonel Elliott White Springs’ legacy of giving back to those who helped his family prosper, our roots run deep in the communities we serve.

Times have changed a lot since Col. Springs started his Foundation in 1942. The places where the Springs Close Foundation makes grants — in Chester, Lancaster and York Counties — are different places in many ways. The current economic recession is a big challenge but our commitment is unwavering.

In response to the high unemployment and economic distress in our communities, The Springs Close Foundation currently is focusing its efforts and resources to provide critical basic support — food, shelter and medical assistance — to those in need. We will only consider grant applications from qualified nonprofit organizations that can effectively deliver these services. The Foundation also will continue its no-interest student loan program.

Foundation Helps Feed Hungry Families

The Springs Close Foundation is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and the Fort Mill School District to send food home every Friday during the school year in the backpacks of children at risk of hunger on the weekends when school meals are not available. A $10,000 grant from the Foundation will start the program for 100 students attending the district's seven elementary schools.
