Sean's home recovery from

Local small business owner Sean Van Buren from Isle of Palms lost not only his boat, but his home due to the destruction of Hurricaine Irma. Sean is known throughout town as a salt of the earth kinda guy that will give you the shirt off his back. Sadly after his boat was taken by the storm surge and slammed against the Isle of Palms Connector, he barely has a shirt for himself. 

Not only was his boat destroyed by the storm, but before he could reclaim his belongings, his boat was looted. Besides the basics of clothes and electronics that can be replaced, the looters took family heirlooms that have very little finacial  value but were priceless to Sean. 

Any help that can be provided will be a huge help to shawn his homeless. No amount is too small and would be immensely appreciated
