FLORENCE, S.C. — Four Pee Dee high school athletic programs are receiving Hurricane Florence relief funds from the Carolina Panthers and Bank of America.

Latta and Marlboro County are each receiving $20,000, Marion receives $18,500, and Mullins receives $8,000.

Seventeen schools, in all from either side of the Carolinas, are receiving portions of $250,000 from the Panthers and Bank of America. The grants will help high school programs replace or repair equipment, supplies or athletic infrastructure lost or damaged during the storms.

“Hurricane Florence and its aftermath was catastrophic for communities across the region with many high schools sustaining loss or damage to athletic equipment or facilities,” stated Riley Fields, Panthers director of community relations, in a press release. “The Carolina Panthers are pleased to partner with Bank of America to enable schools, and the communities that they serve, to return to a sense of normalcy by helping fund critical repairs and infrastructure replacement for high school athletic programs.”

Grants were given in range from $3,000 through $20,000 based on requests from schools and were awarded based on greatest need.
