Communities rally after South Carolina flooding
According to CNN, last weekend’s South Carolina flooding brought record rainfalls of as much as 20 inches fell in some parts of the state. One of the towns hit hardest was Summerville, South Carolina.
Summerville residents Colleen and Martin Kratz manage Springview Academy. Springview is a small business that provides childcare and preschooling to children ranging from six weeks to five years old.
Unfortunately, Springview was devastated by the South Carolina flooding last weekend. The school flooded with eight inches of water, destroying children’s artwork, bookshelves, computers, toys, desks, and drywall. Springview is closed indefinitely as it assesses damage and rebuilds.
During a time when Springview could use extra support, it’s stopped charging tuition to its families. So, Springview’s parents started a page to give supplies and money to their beloved school.
If you want to help out, too, send a quick “Thinking of You” note to the Springview community as they work to get back on their feet and reopen their doors.
Parker family recovers from South Carolina flooding
The Parker family from Columbia lost their home, cars, and everything they own as a result of the South Carolina flooding.
Fortunately, all members of family evacuated their home safely before water reached the second floor of their home. The Parkers are staying with friends as they figure out what to do next.
The Parkers’ community started a GiveForward Page and raised over $5,000 in four days to support them while they rebuild their lives.
