Funded by an Episcopal Relief and Development grant of $25,000, the Episcopal Church in South Carolina (TECSC) has partnered with Giving Kitchen of Atlanta to create the Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund and offer financial assistance to food service workers experiencing hardship due to Hurricane Dorian in coastal South Carolina. The Episcopal Diocese of Georgia, Savannah, received the same grant to serve coastal Georgia.
“While many people in South Carolina did not suffer significant property damage from Hurricane Dorian, the storm was financially devastating to hourly employees who because of the state’s mandatory evacuation were unable to work for nearly a week,” said the Rt. Rev. Gladstone B. “Skip” Adams III, Bishop of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina. “We are thankful for the assistance of Episcopal Relief & Development in allowing our diocese to serve this tremendous need in our local communities,” said Bishop Adams.
One-time funds are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Food service workers may apply for assistance from the Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund from now through September 30, 2019.

How it Works
Giving Kitchen’s online application requires food service workers impacted by Hurricane Dorian to provide proof of current employment in the commercial food service industry as well as financial need in order to qualify for the Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund. Approved applicants will receive grocery store gift cards in amounts ranging from $50 to $500 based on current need. One of the first applicants received $450 in gift cards to help her meet her financial needs.
Giving Kitchen will process online applications for food service workers to receive support from the Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund. TECSC will provide gift cards at pre-approved pickup locations in the communities of Charleston, Pawley’s Island and Myrtle Beach. Specific pick-up locations will be provided to approved applicants.
