The Junior League of Columbia, SC is collecting donations for victims of the devastating flooding that has affected their area. JL Columbia President Kim Leighton wrote the following note to let us know how your League can help:
Thank you so much for reaching out to us. We have many members (Provisional, Active and Sustainer) who have lost everything…and over 100 who have some kind of damage to their homes. We are in the process of checking on our most vulnerable Sustainers and plan on helping all of our members who have been affected during this extraordinarily difficult time. The devastation here is unimaginable.
We are pulling together, and my prayer is that the Junior League of Columbia will be there for our community in the days, months and years to come. This will be a long recovery process, and we are in it for the long haul!
We have secured a wonderful retail space, generously donated by EDENS, to accept all of the donations coming in (mostly from other sister Leagues). If you are interested in donating to help the victims in Columbia, details can be found on our website. We are accepting goods and monetary donations and have volunteer opportunities for Junior League members.
We are so grateful for your support, and we ask you to direct any Leagues interested in donating to our website in order to help the good people of Columbia, South Carolina. The Junior League of Columbia will be there for our community as we have for the past 91 years. I am available if you have any concerns or ideas or questions about what specific items/products are most in need.
