Restoring Hope - Johnnie Mae
In October 2015, South Carolina experienced a devastating and destructive 1,000-year flood. As a result of hurricane Joaquin more than 11 trillion gallons of water engulfed the area and swallowed everything in its path – including thousands of homes in Richland and Lexington Counties. Now, more than a year has passed. There are more than 1,200 families in Richland and Lexington counties who still need help repairing their homes. Through United Way of the Midlands’ Restoring Hope project, we are asking our generous community to re-energize their spirit of generosity and giving to create enough volunteerism, donations and hospitality to restore 250 or more households in the next year so that they become safe and livable. Join our cause at restoringhopesc.org and help more people like Johnnie.
