Alice Manufacturing Company holds the support of our local communities as a core value. Our commitment to community through involvement with charitable and educational organizations is the measure of our success. Devotion to community and self-improvement are values deeply seeded in our company’s culture. Our associates contribute time, funds, and talents to a variety of worthy causes. These include serving on boards, raising funds, and participating in other civic-oriented projects. It is not enough to do business in a community; the key is to be a good corporate citizen and support the community at large.
Initiatives and programs we support include:
Alice Manufacturing provides a match challenge to its employees for support of the United Way. Funding helps provide transition assistance for displaced workers in the form of job training services, financial stability classes, and tax preparation assistance.
Big Brother Big Sisters
Funding has helped children reach their potential through one-to-one relationships with mentors that have a measurable impact on youth.
There are two endowed scholarship programs at Clemson University that were established by the McKissick family.
Easley Baptist Hospital
A wing of the hospital is dedicated in honor of Ellison S. McKissick who was part of the group of civic leaders who founded Easley Baptist. The Emergency Room is dedicated by Alice Manufacturing Company in honor of its employees who gave generously to the hospital’s construction.
The McKissick family donated the land for the Easley YMCA. Today, this organization provides more than 30 wellness programs that serve thousands of Easley residents.
The Company established a scholarship program to provide college scholarships for the children and grandchildren of associates of the Company. In addition, Alice Manufacturing has a long-standing relationship with Tri-County Technical College, which includes the McKissick Hall for textile training.
