DUNCAN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The town of Duncan has adopted the city of Kingstree in Williamsburg County in hopes of helping residents there get back on their feet after historic flooding.

The mayor of Duncan, Lisa Scott, said she felt its everyone's duty to help fellow South Carolinians during such a difficult time.

"Those people are left behind and still dealing with it," Scott said. "They are not getting any coverage but the need is still there."

Scott said while cities like Columbia and Charleston got most of the attention after the floods, smaller cities like Kingstree languished in the shadows.

"It's mostly rural," Scott said of Williamsburg County. "And Kingstree is about the size of our city and that's how we decided on it."

Scott said most needed are blankets, bedding, cleaning supplies, perishable foods, and school supplies but added that any donation is appreciated.

Donations can be brought to Town Hall 153 W. Main Street, Duncan, SC 29334. Donations will be collected through Nov. 18.
