Community is more important than ever right now. And so, in the spirt of helping our neighbors, Treely, BoomTownROI, DIG SOUTH, and The Harbor Entrepreneur Center are asking folks to donate canned food and water or contribute directly to a Relief4Nichols fund for the town of Nichols, South Carolina.
Nichols is a small town in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina between the Little Pee Dee and Lumber Rivers. The town was devastated by Hurricane Matthew’s impact and subsequent flooding. 235 of 261 homes were severely damaged, 300 automobiles were totaled, and 22 businesses affected. Three out of every four residents are elderly or disabled and many remain in shelters. Many are still without power or running water.
How can you help? We’ve set up three options:
- If you are able, food and water donations are being accepted at Harbor Entrepreneur Center, located in downtown Charleston (633 King Street) through Thursday, November 17.
- Those not in the Charleston area can donate directly to the fundraising campaign using the Text.gives platform. You may remember Text.gives as bidr, the DIG 2015 Wild Pitch winner. These funds will be used to help rehabilitate the town.
- You can also help spread the word on Twitter using the hashtag #Relief4Nichols.
Thank you for supporting our South Carolina neighbors!
