Darlington Fire, Police support DHS flood relief efforts
The Darlington Fire and Police departments came together Friday morning, October 9 to donate cases of water to Darlington High School’s flood relief project, “Falcon Relief at the Nest.”
Nearly a dozen school organizations are teaming up with the community to collect necessity items such as water, clothing, non-perishable food and toiletries to create care packages for the communities of Manning High, Crestwood High and Lakewood High. Those areas took devastating hits during recent flooding.
The DHS varsity football team will deliver the care packages to the three schools during upcoming football games.
Darlington Fire and Police donated 30 cases of bottled water, and members of the Darlington County School District picked up the donation at the Darlington Fire Department.
Organizations and citizens of the Darlington County community who would like to help support the DHS relief project can make donations at the high school’s main office, located at 525 Spring St. Monetary donations are also being accepted. Checks can be made out to Darlington High School, marked as “giving back fund.”
