Our brothers and sisters in South Carolina are dealing with the aftermath of what meteorologists are calling a 1,000-year rainfall event. As of this morning, thirteen people have died, and more than a dozen dams have been breached. Here are some ways you can help:
•The American Red Cross is looking for volunteers to help run its shelters. Find updated information on South Carolina shelters here. New volunteers can start applying at RedCross.org/SC. You can also donate to their 2015 Fall Flood fund here.
•The Salvation Army is providing water, shelter, and assistance to affected areas. You can donate to their East Coast Disaster Relief efforts here.
In addition, many denominations will be doing relief work in South Carolina. We encourage you to visit their websites or contact them directly for more information.
