Donations and Volunteers

Severe Flooding

We are truly grateful to all of you who are thinking of South Carolina's citizens as we continue to recover from October's historic rains and severe flooding.

If you wish to make a donation or to volunteer, we ask that you first give locally to neighbors and to local charities. 

Volunteer Services

To volunteer your services, please visit the United Way Association of South Carolina website.


Monetary Donations

Donations of products for disaster relief require transportation, warehousing, and distribution of the products. The most effective offer is a monetary donation. Charitable organizations assisting South Carolina victims will use your donation to purchase - locally if possible - the exact items needed to meet the needs of the victims.

We are requesting that all monetary donations be sent directly to charitable organizations who are assisting our State during this emergency. Please make a selection from the organizations listed below.

Adventist Community Services


American Red Cross of South Carolina


Feeding America


Harvest Hope Food Bank


Lowcountry Food Bank


Lutheran Disaster Response


Presbyterian Disaster Assistance


Salvation Army


Samaritan's Purse


Southern Baptist Convention/Disaster Relief


United Methodist Committee on Relief


United Way of America


United Way of South Carolina


Water Missions International


ONESC Flood Relief Fund


S.C. Food Bank Association




We are not directly accepting used clothing items. However, we are requesting that any in-state clothing donations be taken to a charitable organization within your community. These organizations already have the resources to make the best use of clothing donations.



We are requesting that South Carolina citizens take collected food items to local food banks or other charitable organizations. These local food banks and organizations work with us and will distribute food to the victims in South Carolina and other impacted areas. If you prefer, you may make a monetary donation to the Harvest Hope Food Bank in South Carolina.

If you will be conducting a food drive for disaster relief, please contact Harvest Hope Food Bank to get information on most-needed items.
