Serve and Connect and Local Law Enforcement Implementing Community Drive

By September 17, 2018 No Comments

Serve and Connect, the SC Law Enforcement Officers Association and the SC Police Chiefs Association will coordinate a multi-location disaster relief drop off with participating Midlands police departments. The supplies collected will be sent to the areas across South Carolina most affected by Hurricane Florence.

The drop-off locations will receive items including: bottled water, non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items.   

“Serve & Connect is honored to work with state and local law enforcement and Harvest Hope Food Bank to provide support to our neighbors in the Pee Dee,” Kassy Alia, Serve and Connect President and CEO, said. “We are committed to connecting cops and community and that is what this response is about – neighbor helping neighbor in a time of need.”

“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 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.”
