Your help is needed…


The Town of Batesburg-Leesville, coordinating with the Red Cross, in conjunction with Palmetto Propane is collecting much needed supplies for people in the Columbia metropolitan area.

The greatest immediate needs are bottled water, canned goods, individually packaged snacks, socks, towels, and blankets. (Do not bring clothes at this time.)


Water is being distributed as fast as it comes in, and supplies are running out. Many have asked how they can help, well, here is the opportunity. The Batesburg-Leesville, Lexington, and West Columbia offices of Palmetto Propane are serving as the drop off locations for supplies.


As South Carolinians, we are known for helping each other in the time of need. Now is the time. This is the start of a long process of recovery for the Columbia area. Citizens and homeowners are not out of the woods. There are still many areas threatening to flood as the waters migrate from the Upstate to the Midlands. So, let’s help where help is needed.
