Greenville Water Cares Volunteers in Action

In keeping with Greenville Water’s emphasis on Corporate Social Responsibility, our team members volunteered their time to help Naturaland Trust clean up the Boones Creek Preserve, a 40-acre property that is home to the Oconee Bells – a signature plant of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Volunteers helped clear downed trees and filled the bed of two trucks with trash and debris. They were able to enjoy nature’s beauty while giving back in a meaningful and purposeful way.

Boones Creek is a major tributary of Lake Keowee – one of our three drinking water sources – and is an important area to protect to ensure the delivery of clean and cool water to the lake.

Through our Greenville Water Cares volunteer time off program, our hope is that team members become involved in their communities, lending their voluntary support to programs that positively impact the quality of life within these communities.

Our volunteer program intends to create community engagement opportunities for Greenville Water employees that are meaningful, purposeful, and help those in need. At the same time, Greenville Water recognizes that participating in these activities will also enrich and inspire the lives of our employees.

Greenville Water is a community-minded, family-oriented workplace. We sponsor several community events and host celebrations for employees and families throughout the year. Our employees enjoy competitive pay and excellent benefits, including a pension, 401K and more. Being able to provide employees with another benefit like volunteer time off speaks to Greenville Water’s efforts to be the employer of choice in the Upstate.
