During The Coronavirus pandemic, many workers are being laid off.

We need Disaster SNAP!
South Carolina unemployment claims rose 1,600% in one week as officials try to mitigate the health and economic consequences of the coronavirus.

By the end of last week, 31,054 South Carolinians had filed unemployment insurance claims, according to data from the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce. The previous week, the agency received 1,996 initial claims from people living and working in the state.

Workers in coastal counties Charleston and Horry — which rely heavily on the hospitality and tourism industries — filed the most claims: 4,183 from Charleston County and 5,258 in Horry County.

The process to file for unemployment has also been a nightmare throughout the process.

We must bridge the gap and assist those in need with SNAP benefits. 
If the governor would issue cards immediately, this would end the struggle of putting food on the table for families.

With children being home all day and parents along with them, they need to eat also! This is a nightmare when having to decide if you feed your children or put gas into your car. 

We need 75,000 signers to get attention!! Please pass, share, and educate!

If you do not need assistance, please sign for that elderly person that does!!
