IRMO, S.C. — Just over a week ago, the Harbison Gardens apartment complex caught on fire, displacing seven families. The Harbison Community Center has been a hub for donations for these families.
Community resource manager Cookie Brooks worked with the Harbison Gardens property manager Natashia Thompson to organize these donations. They were even able to specify each families specific needs in order to help them receive what they no longer have.
"We have received a tremendous amount of support from the community," Harbison Community Center's Executive Director Dave Grove shares, "Not only the Harbison community but people out of the Harbison area and we’re just overwhelmed with the support.”
Grove says this kind of tragedy to happen to anyone anytime. “To see all these supplies here, it just makes you feel so wonderful.”
Clothes, food, shoes, toiletries, are what people have been bringing in for these families. But some things that are also needed are kitchen supplies or household items as well.
You can bring all these things to the Harbison Community Center until April 30th. Anything leftover will be donated back into the community.
