BUFC Returns to Practice, Helps Hurricane Victims

BUFC Family Asked to Assist with Help 4 Kids Program

Beach United Football Club returned to its regular practice schedule Monday, Sept. 24, although the remains of Hurricane Florence continue to plague the Grand Strand with record flooding more than a week after making landfall.

With Horry County Schools closed since Sept. 11 and The Market Common's soccer fields unplayable due to wet conditions,

BUFC's teas have been sidelined from practice and competition. However, teams returned to the practice pitch Monday and are in the process of rescheduling postponed matches.

Meanwhile, just miles away from the practice fields, homes near the Waccamaw River and Intracoastal Waterway were preparing for the cresting floodwaters.

Several BUFC players and HCS students volunteered their time filling sand bags and delivering them to vulnerable homes and businesses.

BUFC is also organizing a relief effort for Help 4 Kids, a local non-profit organization that distributes food to over 3,000 families in Horry County.

The BUFC family is asked to volunteer by collecting the following items for distribution:

- dried pasta/canned sauce
- dried beans/rice
- canned tomatoes/potatoes
- canned beans
- oil/sugar/salt
- hot dogs/bologna/buns
- baby items, diapers, baby food, wipes
- gift cards for perishable items we can purchase
