Why was TORCH formed?

TORCH of Hartwell Inc, was formed in late 2012, at the request of the City of Hartwell/Hart County and by the Joint Economic Development Committee of the Chamber of Commerce/ DDA as a vehicle to generate economic development and transform blighted areas in Downtown Hartwell. This public/private partnership generated the creation of a 501(c)(3) public charitable organization, TORCH of Hartwell.
