In response to the devastating storms that ripped through South Carolina on April 13th, impacting areas around their facilities, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions is donating $10,000 dollars to the American Red Cross to assist with critical relief efforts.
This donation will help to ensure that the American Red Cross of South Carolina is able to safely provide food, shelter, comfort and relief to people affected by these storms and will help to offset the extraordinary challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The storms ripped through parts of South Carolina destroying dozens of homes and leaving hundreds impacted. The Red Cross was in those communities within hours to help. We have helped shelter over 260 people and provide over 1,400 meals and snacks while continuing damage assessment. This generous gift allows us to continue our work to respond to this disaster and other local disasters.
“This has been a very difficult time for everyone in South Carolina as we adapt to this COVID-19 environment and continue to recover from the April storms” said Rebecca Jordan, the Executive Director of the Central Chapter of the Red Cross of South Carolina. “We are so appreciative to Savannah River Nuclear Solutions and their generous donation that allows us to support local communities, every day.”
“Our hearts go out to those impacted by the tornadoes and storms in Bamberg, Barnwell, Hampton, Orangeburg and other counties across South Carolina,” said Savannah River Nuclear Solutions President & Chief Executive Officer Stuart MacVean. “We appreciate all the Red Cross is doing and support their efforts in responding to the needs in our region.”
