FLORENCE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office responded to the call when another agency asked for help amid the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.

Seven deputies from the Upstate sheriff’s office volunteered to leave their homes and their families to assist the Florence County Sheriff’s Office and help with the flooding in the area.

After learning of the agency’s efforts, the owner of Camping World in Spartanburg donated two RV’s for the deputies to live out of while they were helping out in Florence. This was not only helpful for the deputies but also to keep rooms vacant for area residents who are not able to stay in their homes.

The Spartanburg County deputies are expected to remain in Florence until Friday.

The Greenville County Fire Department also took the initiative to help residents affected by Hurricane Matthew at the coast.

Crew members took a trip to Hilton Head to assist with relief efforts in the area and are seen with all smiles as they help the residents there during this tough time.
