Hurricane Florence



To our SC interpreting family,


While we brace for Hurricane Florence’s impact, the SC RID Board wants to reach out and let you know that each of you are in our thoughts and prayers. We hope that everyone is safe and has access to all the resources they need to endure the storm ahead. Thank you to all the interpreters who have worked with emergency communication efforts over this last week throughout the state. Your work is invaluable. We also want to say “thank you” in advance to all the interpreters who will be working alongside disaster relief efforts once the storm has passed. We will continue to do our best to disseminate information and provide resources along the way. We have listed contact information for various organizations that may be of help below. Wishing you all the best in the days to come.


Sincerely,



Mary Beth Grayson
