A week after the storm that caused massive flooding in our state, South Carolinians are turning toward recovery and restoration. Thousands of National Guard troops are at work, and charitable organizations have donated hundreds of thousands of meals to people in need. Hundreds have been displaced by the disaster, and help is still needed across the state.
One way to find out how you can help is to call the South Carolina donation line: 888-585-9843. Harvest Hope food bank has some specific needs: diapers, baby formula, and other baby items, peanut butter. They are also asking for teams of 20-25 people to help in pantries across the state. If you are interested in leading a team of 20 to 25 people to volunteer, call 1-803-254-4432 ext. 1113. If you are currently in need, resources are available. Call 211 to connect with the United Way for help. You can also call 211 if you’d like to give or volunteer.
