I have received a number of emails from Hip2Savers asking for assistance to help those effected by recent floodings and other tragedies…
From Elena in South Carolina:
Hey Collin! I’m in South Carolina and I’m sure you heard about the severe flooding. Yes, it is pretty bad! I am lucky I am living far away enough where my house is safe but others are not so lucky. I was hoping you could ask your readers to help donate supplies to our local food banks or a gift card to help a family in need. Christmas and Thanksgiving are right around the corner and it is devastating to lose everything you own. More than 300 people have been rescued and more than 30,000 were asked to leave. Donations can be sent to food pantries, churches or Noah’s Ark Baby Shop at 1419 Hwy 17 S, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582.
From Regina in South Carolina:
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your site! I live here in Sumter, SC and many families here have been devastated by the tragic flooding that happened here. It’s still not over but I believe the worse is behind us. I was one of few families whose home was not flooded and whose family is safe. I just want to say that through your website I have been able to build a stock pile of many items I use on a regular basis. Its great because it appears many stores will be closed for a while. Though my stock pile isn’t huge, I plan to use a majority of it to help those that lost everything. Above is what our area looks like.
From Tonya in Oregon:
I was wondering if you might consider posting a donation link to American Red Cross. They serve so greatly in times of need. I live in Portland, Oregon and the recent mass shooting is absolutely heartbreaking. I know fellow nurses who have earned their degrees there. And, you have a huge following of Hip2Savers in this area. Though there is nothing practical I can do (other than thoughts and prayers) to show this community and these families how deeply sorry I am, the American Red Cross is always there for emotional and physical support in times like these. The services they provide are invaluable. Monetary donations and blood donations are always needed, and are a means of showing we care ❤️
