***Sandbag Distribution Schedule and Important Info***
Sandbags will be issued on Friday (9/8) beginning at 11am until 5pm (or while supplies last). Individuals are encouraged to arrive early.
Location – City Hall Gymnasium off of Robinson Street.
Car Loop – All cars will be staged along Robinson Street only from the gymnasium towards Dickson Ave. Robinson will have one-way traffic so you will need to enter Robinson street from Dickson Ave. No bags will be issued within the parking lot of city hall and will be by vehicle only on Robinson Street. Officers will be on hand to provide traffic support.
Bag Limit – Due to limited supplies, bag limits will be 6 (outside flood zone) and 12 (inside flood zone). Individuals must show valid ID with proof of residency. Bags will be issued for individuals in attendance only. Anyone wishing to pick up bags for others will need to make a return trip.
Information of sand availability for Saturday will be provided on Friday at 5 pm. We anticipate having sand and bags available Saturday with residents responsible for filling and loading as needed.
We issued over 4,000 sand bags today and appreciate everyone’s patience throughout the process. We apologize that not everyone was able to get sand today and we hope that we can serve you tomorrow/Saturday to fill your needs. Special thanks to the Hanahan High School Baseball Team, Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, Restoration Community Church, city staff, and community volunteers for assistance today. Anyone wishing to volunteer can arrive on Friday as early as 9 am. Lunch will be provided for volunteers at 12:30.
