COLUMBIA, S.C. (WSPA) – Governor Nikki Haley, along with the Central Carolina Community Foundation, plans to increase fundraising efforts of the One SC Fund to help those who have been impacted by Hurricane Matthew.
One SC Fund was established to help South Carolinians recover from natural disasters.
The Fund’s first project was to provide relief and recovery assistance after the flooding last year.
The fund has distributed $2,000,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations supporting flood recovery projects, and has helped return 1,500 families back home.
Now, Governor Haley hopes the disaster recovery fund will assist South Carolinians who were affected by the storm.
“South Carolinians from all walks of life have been so generous through the challenges of the last few years. We are now faced with a new challenge, and in the spirit of our state, of neighbors helping neighbors, we have expanded the mission of the OneSC Fund to help deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Thank you, to anyone and everyone, in advance, for your gracious support – trust that every dollar we raise will go directly to helping a fellow South Carolinian in need,” said Governor Nikki Haley
