Hurricane Relief: Habitat for Humanity of Horry County
Bring donations of cleaning supplies to the check-in desk to support local families as they rebuild their lives.

The coast of North and South Carolina were hit with devastating flooding and damage from back-to-back hurricanes (Florence and Michael) in the fall of 2018. CACRAO member institutions, their employees and students were drastically affected as schools were closed for weeks and lives needed to be rebuilt after the storms. The service project for this year happened to coincide with an area that needs our support. Families in Horry County not only are seeking new shelter but daily cleaning supplies to start their lives over and our donations will support these efforts.
If you are looking for additional ways to support, below are two fundraising efforts coordinated through our member institutions:
