ECCF accepting donations for Pee Dee Disaster Relief
Since the flooding last week, the Eastern Carolina Community Foundation has had people inquiring about ways to help locally. Some ways to help include donating directly to ECCF for its Pee Dee Disaster Relief Fund. The foundation is accepting monetary donations to support flood relief across the Pee Dee region.
Contributions will go to agencies working to meet the needs of flood victims in our area. The loss and devastation caused by flooding is ongoing in the aftermath of the rains and local need is expected to rise. ECCF created the Pee Dee Disaster Relief Fund in 2010 at the urging of public officials in response to the tornadoes that hit Darlington County.
The fund was designed specifically for emergency grant-making to agencies conducting disaster relief. It has not been pulled into action since 2010, but like all of our work, funds exist to address quality of life issues both now and far into the future. Visit www.easterncarolinacf.org to make a secure tax-deductible online donation to the Pee Dee Disaster Relief Fund. You may also mail your donation to ECCF, PO Box 1615, Florence, SC 29503.
You can also go to First Reliance Bank and make a direct deposit to the Community Foundation's Pee Dee Disaster Relief Fund. Donations are tax deductible and will be deployed locally to help disaster relief in the seven county region of the Pee Dee. For more information call 843-667-1131.
