Do you know someone with ties to Beaufort or Jasper counties directly affected by the disasters in Japan? Do you know someone who witnessed the events or who is on hand to help in the relief effort?
If so, The Island Packet and The Beaufort Gazette would like to tell the stories to our readers. Please e-mail details and contact information to editor Jeff Kidd at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Also, if you are organizing a benefit or drive to help the victims in Japan, send details to Kidd for inclusion in our roundup of local relief efforts. Please note, we will run notices only for school and church groups or organizations with official nonprofit status.
