Bulloch County to Help Hurricane Victims

Keiante Polley

After Hurricane Joaquin made its pass up the East Coast, South Carolina has found itself flooded after dams have either been breached or destroyed, according to the Statesboro Herald.

The Bulloch County Public Safety Director Ted Wynn told Statesboro Herald to “reach out to them if you can.” The South Carolina Department of Emergency management has reported 17 people dead.

Bulloch County has decided to assist the victims of Hurricane Joaquin. Through the efforts of the Bulloch County Public Safety Office, donated items can now be taken to Bulloch County Public Safety Office on Highway 301 North. Non-pershiable items and foods such as canned peas, toothpaste, deodorant, and baby food can be gathered and delivered to the affected in South Carolina.

Monetary donations are also being accepted. Those donations will help pay for what Statesboro Herald described as “transporting, warehousing and delivering donated items, as well as the purchase of additional items by charitable organizations that are helping meet the state’s needs.” For more information please contact Holli Deal Saxon at (912) 489-9414.
