MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – In the wake of Hurricane Matthew, there are a number of ways you can help recovery efforts.

Volunteering

The South Carolina Emergency Management Division says they are still assessing damage and will let those seeking to volunteer know about specific volunteer needs moving forward.

In the meantime, SCEMD suggests volunteers seek opportunities within their local networks, such as in church and civic groups. If you are not affiliate with a group, you can register at VolunteerSC.org, and check back as volunteer opportunities become available.

In Myrtle Beach, Impact Ministries is helping coordinate disaster relief efforts. Click here for more information and to register as a volunteer.

Donations

WMBF News is working with the American Red Cross to support disaster relief efforts in South Carolina, and specifically those affected in Horry, Georgetown, Marion, Marlboro, Florence, Darlington, Scotland, Robeson counties. Click here to donate to that fund.

The SCEMD says the most effective offer is a monetary donation through the One SC Fund. This fund is used to support non-profit organizations across the state providing relief and recovery assistance to disaster victims. Click here to donate to the One SC Fund.

SCEMD also encourages residents to donate locally to food pantries, faith-based organizations, and other non-profits. The Lowcountry Food Bank is among the food pantries providing assistance in Horry county. Click here for information on how to donate.

SCEMD is not directly accepting used clothing items, and they are requesting that any in-state clothing donations be taken to a charitable organization within your community.
