Three weeks after historical flooding devastated parts of South Carolina, more than 100 roads remain closed and volunteers and workers continue to work around the clock to clean up the mess. Torrential rains washed away entire homes, leaving South Carolina residents scrambling to secure day-to-day necessities.

Organizations and individuals across the country answered South Carolina's calls for help in the days following the flooding and while a national mission was launched to help rebuild South Carolina, residents in Macon County also joined the effort. Leading the local charge was Macon County Farm Bureau agent Nikki Adams, who set out to collect donations from the community and then personally drive them to areas in South Carolina beginning to recover from the rains.
