Bennettsville Reviews

I enjoy my town being close with other citizens in the community. We have parades, festivals, and special needs parties that I enjoy volunteering in. We have a lot of history here so every time I go on a tour, it allows me to see my home town from a different perspective. One thing that I would like to see change, is the education. Many residents in my community have not went to college, so it isn't easy for people to get jobs. Job opportunities never come here because the people are not capable of working them. This turns our society to a "poor" community. I know our people are capable of doing great tings, but we don't have the resources to do so. This results in our students going to college, depending on scholarships.
Review Bennettsville
A high poverty town, a seasonal town that relies on seasonal traffic for improvements and seasonal jobs to feed the local employment base. This town needs a major industry that is year round to help improve their economic development. This county lost its Hospital due to having too many people with no insurance. The economic damage was done way before Obamacare to help save the facility.
What I like about Bennettsville, SC is the community I live in. We have many friendly people here and many safe neighborhoods. Throughout my years living here, the only thing I wish was changed in Bennettsville, is the violence in most known neighborhoods.
