How to help SC Flood relief effort

To help with disaster efforts, the best way is to make a monetary contribution to one of the many Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOADs).

The agencies are listed on South Carolina’s Emergency Management Division’s website:  http://www.scemd.org/recovery-section/donations-and-volunteers.

While the outpouring of support for people wanting to donate water is greatly appreciated, the state does NOT need any additional resources at this time.

Organized donations cut down on transportation time and costs.

Those offering resources needed for response or recovery efforts, and those who can offer transportation for donations may contact Emergency Support Function (ESF)18 at (803) 737–8518 or (803) 737-8875.
