Eastern Carolina Community Foundation accepting donations for flood relief
Eastern Carolina Community Foundation is accepting monetary donations to support flood relief across the Pee Dee region. All contributions to the Pee Dee Relief Fund will go to agencies working to meet the needs of flood victims in our area.
Eastern Carolina Community Foundation (ECCF) is a public charity established in 2006 to improve the quality of life in the Pee Dee through inspired philanthropy and innovative community programs. The agency serves seven counties: Chesterfield, Darlington, Florence, Marlboro, Dillon, Marion and Williamsburg, which includes those hardest hit by flooding in the Pee Dee. Donations are tax deductible, and 100 percent goes to assist Pee Dee efforts. The Pee Dee Relief Fund was established in 2010 in response to the Darlington tornado disaster. It is used specifically for emergency grant-making to agencies conducting disaster relief in the region.
The loss and devastation caused by flooding in the area is ongoing in the aftermath of the rains, so local need is expected to rise.
“Our hearts go out to the victims of this unprecedented flood, and we are thrilled to establish this fund to help them,” said Sarah Shelley, executive director of the ECCF. “We’ve had people inquiring about ways to help locally, so this fund is in response to that. It’s a convenient, safe way to make a positive impact and you can rest assured your contribution will be used to provide relief for Pee Dee citizens impacted by this disaster.”
