Beaufort, S.C. (February 27, 2019) – At the request of the local police department, The Salvation Army of Beaufort, South Carolina is providing temporary housing for 50 people displaced on Sunday by an early morning fire at the Knight’s Inn in Hardeeville, South Carolina. Some of the people displaced are children ages 18 months to 12 years old who were living at the hotel. Estimates are that as many as 30 people were living at the Knights Inn permanently.
“When we received the call from the Hardeeville Police Department, we sprang into action. The Salvation Army is a safety net for people in our community to help meet their physical needs. But as we provide service we are also leading them to Jesus,” said Captain Robert Long of The Salvation Army of Beaufort. “During heartwrenching times such as this, the healing power of our Savior is every bit as important as the physical needs we address.”
The Salvation Army continues to work with the Hardeeville Police Department and other community partners to identify and address unmet needs.
Please continue to pray for the families impacted by this fire. Monetary contributions can be made to The Salvation Army in the following ways:
