MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The long road to recovery is just beginning for so many after Hurricane Matthew. 

The flooding caused so much devastation in so many of our communities, with people losing everything they own.

But the outpouring of support shows that we will not just rebuild, we will come out stronger.

WMBF News partnered with the Salvation Army for a flood relief fundraiser and in just a few hours more than $25,000 was raised as the phones lit up, and that doesn’t include all of the online donation dollars yet.

Consider This: The money that is raised will stay right here to help our neighbors and business owners get their homes and livelihoods back.

So, if you haven’t donated yet, you can still go here where we are still taking online donations.

To everyone that has, thank you.  We will continue to bring you the stories of how the generosity of the people in our community is making a huge impact in the lives of others.
