Florence County Sheriff’s Office to help collect flood relief items

September 19, 2018

FLORENCE, S.C. -- Florence County Sheriff’s Office and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Association (SCLEOA) in association with Serve and Connect have partnered to collect supplies for South Carolina victims of Hurricane Florence. SCLEOA and the SC Police Chief’s Association will coordinate a multi-location disaster relief drop off with participating agencies, including sheriff’s office. These drop-off locations will receive items including bottled water, non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items for distribution to victims of the Hurricane.

“The outpouring of support that South Carolina felt during the flood in 2015, Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and Hurricane Irma in 2017 was amazing,” Ryan Alphin, Executive Director of the SC Law Enforcement Officers Association and the SC Police Chiefs Association, said. “As needs arise, we will continue to support our fellow South Carolinians in any way possible, especially those in the Pee Dee that will be deeply impacted by flood waters in the coming days.”

“We are proud to partner with SCLEOA and the SC Police Chiefs Association to be a drop-off location for these much needed supplies for those effected in our area,” Sheriff Kenney Boone said. “Donated items can be delivered to the Florence County Law Enforcement Center located at 6719 Friendfield Road, Effingham, and we urge Florence County residents to reach out to help those less fortunate.”
