The Hearts & Hands Harmony South Carolina Benefit Concert is a celebration of the 5-year anniversary of the agency and an opportunity to raise awareness and much needed funding for the residents of South Carolina who are still trying to recover from the losses they suffered due to the October 2015 Flood. In the last year HHDR has assisted more than 6,000 South Carolina residents with their flood recovery efforts while thousands more await much needed flood relief.

The charity concert will take place Thursday, August 24th, 2017. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m. with performances beginning at 6:30 p.m. Drinks, food, and merchandise will be available to purchase before the show and throughout the evening. A silent auction will be held and items up for bid include an 8-day hunting safari trip, a taste of Tuscany with a private casa for four people, and a trip for two to the American Music Awards. Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster.  All members of the press who are interested in covering the event should contact Doug Ames at 803-467-2708.

Hearts & Hands Disaster Recovery is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide disaster impacted communities with innovative programs to address the unmet needs of residents. What started 5 years ago as an organization providing inexpensive mold remediation has evolved into a full-scale disaster relief organization that provides Disaster Case Management, Mold Remediation, Temporary Housing, and Home Repairs to residents in need. According to Falon Alo, Executive Director of HHDR, “The concert is a celebration of all the dedication and hard work of Hearts & Hands Disaster Recovery in our first 5 years of operation and an incredible opportunity to raise awareness and the much-needed support for the victims of the flood. The funding will go towards remaining repair and rebuild projects, temporary housing, and unmet needs such as household appliances and furniture. One of the largest factors with the event is involving the local community because that is where the devastation has happened. Citizens helping citizens will always play a big role in recovery as all disasters are local. We could think of nothing else for our anniversary than to continue to support our clients to return to a safe, sanitary, and secure environment.” For more information about HHDR and this event please visit

Eight Days of Hope

Eight Days of Hope will be in South Carolina serving the counties of Georgetown and Williamsburg in October, as hundreds of families are still in need of help as they wait to rebuild following the flooding last year! This area has experienced devastating damage as the Black River caused flooding that is being categorized as a thousand year flood. Over 25 inches of rain fell in a short period of time causing $22 Billion dollars of damage! Please consider praying, volunteering or donating to this cause as we will be serving from October 8th through the 15th. We will work with the local community to help rebuild homes and as importantly bring hope to so many who are feeling hopeless as these homes are in dire need of repair.
