In the wake of the devastating floods caused by last weekend's historic rainfall, people in South Carolina and around the country have been quick to step up and offer help. The University of South Carolina was spared from the worst of the damage, and as a result many USC students have been in a position to volunteer in the relief efforts around Columbia. Gamecock student-athletes have been no exception and several teams have worked together and volunteered their time to help relieve the suffering in the city.

We encourage everyone who is able to take advantage of the numerous opportunities to contribute to relief efforts in South Carolina. Students and alumni in particular can go through the university to volunteer their time in Columbia. A longer list of ways to help flood victims can be found right here.
