First Federal/SCBT gives nearly $7,000 from Front Street Fire Fund today
MYRTLE BEACH, SC --- Nearly $7,000 collected by the Front Street Fire Fund at First Federal/SCBT will be presented to the American Red Cross Coastal South Carolina chapter today at 3 p.m. at the First Federal office on Church Street in Georgetown.
A special presentation will take place with Nanci Conley, executive director of the American Red Cross, board members and bank representatives.
The bank partnered with the Georgetown area community to raise funds in support of the American Red Cross Coastal South Carolina chapter after supplies were depleted in response to the massive fire that destroyed at least eight buildings, businesses and residences on the beloved Front Street. First Federal/SCBT opened a special account today with $1,500 in corporate and the community contributed remaining funds.
“Our company has deep roots in Georgetown and we are proud to give back in this way,” said Brent Mackie, regional president, First Federal/SCBT. “Particularly during the Thanksgiving season, we are pleased to support our friends, neighbors and fellow members of the business community.”
The funds will be used to replenish Red Cross supplies as relief workers respond to individuals affected by the fire. Conley indicated the Red Cross provided 350 hot meals, hydration and mental health services to those impacted by the fire. In addition, financial assistance, housing and food needs were met.
