On Wednesday, Horry County School district announced a two week suspension after three Horry County Schools Employees tested positive for COVID-19.
Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) is an organization composed of several local nonprofits including United Way of Horry County.
The VOAD website is managed by Impact Ministries and features a food map that shows meal sites for families in need.
“We want to make sure everyone is aware of what they’re doing. And to make sure we are not duplicating efforts and make sure that we’re spreading those resources all throughout the county,” said Blakely Roof, President and CEO of Horry County.
Roof encourages restaurants, churches, hotels, and other businesses offering free services to people in the county to register their groups on VOAD’s website.
“What we really need is anyone in the community that’s doing that to enter that information, because it’s only as good as the information on there,” said Roof.
