Hurricane Frances

Hurricane Frances is pounding Florida.

The damage and destruction from Hurricane Charley was great. Hurricane Frances is weaving a path of even greater damage and destruction in the state.

Those of us in South Carolina who have survived hurricanes know what Floridians are facing.

We've benefited from the aid of our neighbors in the past, and it's time to return the favor.

What can we do?

The simplest thing we can do is be kind the evacuees who have sought shelter here. Remember that they are overwhelmed with worries of having homes and jobs to return to. Be polite and helpful; take an extra moment to offer a few words of comfort. Something so little can mean so much during times of trial.

Another way to help is to donate to the Salvation Army or Red Cross, keeping in mind that one person requires one gallon of water daily...if you only give $5.00, you will helping five people.
