Editorial | Area Red Cross Heroes Campaign Kicks Off Feb. 26

One of the two families assisted by the Coastal S.C. Chapter of the American Red Cross after fires on Valentine’s Day included seven children from ages 2 to 16. Assistance with temporary lodging, food and clothing is a major area disaster service of the chapter, which has helped 366 people since last July 1. Nanci Conley, executive director of the chapter, says the number of people helped after home fires is up significantly. At this time a year ago, the number of fire victims was 208 in the chapter’s three-county (Georgetown, Horry, Williamsburg) service area.
