She texted me about making masks for the medical community. She immediately sprung into action, getting volunteers and donated items.

As this epidemic broke out, she aggressively became involved in creating these masks and being sure that they were available throughout our community

And I’m proud to call her a friend. She has a huge, caring heart, and I know there are lots of people in our community that are very thankful

Her creativity, and encouragement of other people and businesses in our central business district have been essential to the growth of Spartanburg.
