Smith says her family first settled in Waccamaw more than 200 years ago and she has been trying to find a way to help.

“When the water started rising in some areas, it just completely flooded,” said Smith. “One of my cousins lost her home and two vehicles. So I know some of it was very devastating for the people there. Some things you’re not going to recover from in a month or two. It will be years before people recover.”

Smith plans to distribute the items on November 4 at Via Mexico, which is located at: 4417 Whiteville Road NW Ash, NC 28420.
