Disaster Relief

As you know the Carolinas were hit hard by Hurricane Florence beginning on September 13, 2018. This slow moving hurricane has left towns devastated by downed trees and collapsed structures. Many places flooded as the hurricane passed through and more are threatened now with several rivers expected to crest to record breaking levels. We established a state disaster relief fund in April 2016 to assist GFWC-SC members and GFWC State Federations in times of natural disasters. We encourage you to donate to our fund in order to assist clubwomen in the Carolinas. Donations made payable to GFWC-SC may be sent to GFWC-SC Treasurer Beth Taylor, 4 High Pointe Lane, Blythewood, SC 29016-7609.
