George Knox of Lutheran Services of the Carolinas provided the following website and associated information:
www.crisiscleanup.org (On this website, you can click on maps at the top, and then on the left will be a list of current disasters being worked. Go down to the South Carolina flood, and then the SC map will pop up with marks on it with all of the places looking for help. You can click on the marks, and then claim a case and go out and do that work. Wherever you send workers, they should contact that counties emergency management to let them know what they are doing.)
