Thanksgiving in SC-07

I hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving! I want to highlight a few of the ways our community came together to give thanks over the past week. Local churches providing Thanksgiving meals to those in need, the Myrtle Beach Inn hosting families who are not yet back in their homes after Hurricane Florence, and a local couple working overtime to put on the Bucksport Thanksgiving Parade are just a few examples of people helping their neighbors and uplifting our community. I am so proud to represent you and thankful to be a part of our wonderful community!

  As our community continues to recover from Hurricane Florence, I will keep you updated with information from FEMA that may be helpful to you and your family during this process. 

Deadline Approaching: The FEMA deadline to apply for disaster assistance for damage and losses from Hurricane Florence has been extended to Wednesday, December 5th.You won't know if you are eligible for funds unless you apply, so I encourage you to do so! Please share this information with anyone you think may need assistance.

Disaster Recovery Center Closures and Hours: As traffic at Disaster Recovery Centers slows down, some of the centers are closing. There are still DRCs open across the Seventh District where you can receive help filling out your disaster assistance application until December 5th. Find the closest center to you here.
