Pickens County Sheriff’s Office Collects Bottled Water and Dry Pet Food for Flood Victims
The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office is collecting donations consisting of bottled water and dry pet food for the citizens of South Carolina affected by the recent flooding.
Bottled water is in high demand due to the damage and contamination to the supporting infrastructure for water and sewer systems in and around the flood zones. Families suffering from the devastation are struggling to provide not only for themselves but also for their pets with local animal shelters experiencing overwhelming demands for temporary care and support for cats and dogs.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone that would like to specifically donate bottled water and/or dry pet food to drop it off at the Pickens County Law Enforcement Center located at 216 C. David Stone Rd. in Pickens during normal business hours (8:30am until 4:30pm) from now through Friday afternoon.
Sheriff Rick Clark stated…
“South Carolina has a history of pulling together when our communities are in need and we have some of the most caring people in our state that have chosen to live here in Pickens County. We have received several calls from citizens in the community asking how they can help and the Sheriff’s Office is more than happy to help organize and get these items to the South Carolina Sheriff’s Association Office in Columbia for distribution to those in need.”
