SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Relief workers in Columbia said Thursday that they had an abundance of water thanks to the generous donations made in recent days and said they currently are in great need of toiletry and hygiene items, according to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, which has officers assisting with flood relief efforts.

Lt. Kevin Bobo said relief workers and Midlands residents are very grateful for all the donations that have been sent to the area but said the flood victims’ need for personal hygiene items such as soap, toothpaste, and shampoo now outweighs the need for water.

The Spartanburg Co. Sheriff's Office is one of several local agencies that collected water donations and distributed the donated water to relief workers in Columbia.
