Carolina Forest Fire - Community Service Opportunities
Mar 21, 2013
Looking for ways to help those affected by the terrible fires that took place on Saturday, March 16? There are many ways for gsSCENE members to help the Windsor Green Carolina Forest fire victims.
The Red Cross, United Way and Goodwill have been collecting and distributing clothes, household goods and personal items all week at the X Gym Sports Mall located at 568 George Bishop Pkwy. They only have the space through Saturday, March 23, and are strongly encouraging victims to come and get as much stuff as they want before then.
Anything that is left over from those donations will be put for sale in a community yard sale also at the X Gym Sports Mall on Friday, March 29 and Saturday, March 30, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. each day, with all monies raised going to the victims. Any leftover items from there will be donated to Goodwill and Helping Hand. They are in need of 20 volunteers on those days. To volunteer contact the Red Cross at (843) 477-0020.
As well, they are still seeking donations via the Red Cross and Salvation Army. Anyone interested in making a tax deductible donation can send checks to:
3531 Pampas Drive
Myrtle Beach SC 29577
PO Box 500
Conway SC 29528
Please put CF Fire Victims in the memo line.
Or credit card donations can be made by phone (again mentioning the CF Fire Victims specifically) by calling:
Red Cross: (843) 477-0020
Salvation Army: (843) 488-2769 X 27
