We are back in the office this week, ready to help answer questions from those interested in supporting Hurricane Matthew relief efforts.
The “Help The Grand Strand” disaster recovery fund, started at WCF by the Area Recovery Cooperative, Inc. (ARC), will be used for human services that are currently unmet, enabling residents of the entire Myrtle Beach area to recover as quickly as possible.
There are three ways you can donate to support this fund:
By check – Mail a check to our offices written out to Waccamaw Community Foundation with “Hurricane Matthew Relief” in the memo line. Find our address at the bottom of this web page.
By phone – Call 1-800-356-3016 to make your credit card payment over the phone.
By web – Visit our Give Now page to make your online credit card payment. Select the “Other” gift designation and type “Hurricane Matthew Relief” into the other designation box.
As always, contact us with any questions at 843-357-4483. We wish all of our friends and neighbors in need a quick recovery.
