Sunday morning October 4th, three days of torrential rains in Columbia SC culminated with massive flooding that ripped through the heart of F3 Columbia. Despite their own losses, many of our pax readily took to boats and other vehicles to literally rescue neighbors from rising waters and provide immediate emergency assistance. Some of our guys have lost everything -- homes, cars, businesses. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries or loss of life.
We need help for our displaced families. So many of you have asked "how?" Please consider a cash donation.
These funds will be used first and foremost to assist our own pax with their short term, immediate needs (including shelter, food, and clothing) as they clean up and return to normal. Any remaining funds will be distributed directly to those in need.
Thank you all, F3 Nation, for all of your thoughts, prayers, tweets, texts, calls, and overall concern for us in Columbia. We will be OK, and we will do what we can to make sure our community will be, too. Your financial help -- no matter how large or small -- is greatly appreciated.
PS: 2/10/16 - Per GoFundMe guidelines and request, I'm required to let you know that these funds will come to me personally to then be passed along to F3 Columbia for distribution by the Flood Committee.
