Clinton woman takes to internet for flood relief

A Clinton woman whose home has been flooded since late February’s record-setting rainfall has established a GoFundMe page as she prepares to return to her home, and what promises to be a large mess.

Brandi Anderson has set a goal of $20,000 to help her pay for a new heat and air unit, new ductwork under her house, possible replacement of the floors and the likely cost of mold and mildew treatment. On the Go FundMe page, a link to which you can find on our website, Anderson writes that she is a single mother without flood insurance on her home. She says that after speaking with county, state and even federal officials, she is not likely to be eligible for any federal disaster relief funds because countywide, Anderson County’s flood damage did not meet the threshhold for that aid. She says she is now turning toward churches, charities and donations from the community.

She hasd not been able to fully assess the damage that has been done, but she is currently staying with family members. In the GoFundMe campaign description, she writes, “If you are able to help with a donation that would be greatly appreciated.  If not, please share with others.”

Here is a link to the GoFundMe page for Brandi Anderson.
