Restoring Hope raises nearly $350,000 to rebuild flooded homes

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - We asked and you answered. On the one year-anniversary of the historic flooding here in South Carolina, you helped raise $349,787 for the United Way of the Midlands Restoring Hope campaign.

While the United Way didn't quite hit the half-million dollar goal, the money will provide a boost for United Way's $2 million dollar goal for Restoring Hope this year to help repair at least 250 homes damaged by the 2015 flood. 

There are currently 1200 homeowners on a wait list for repairs in Richland and Lexington counties.
