COLUMBIA, S.C. –On Wednesday, Vice President and General Manager of Nucor Steel Berkeley, Giff Daughtridge, announced the company’s donation of $100,000 to the One SC fund.

“This is South Carolina at her best,” said Gov. Nikki Haley. “We have incredible corporate partners, and $100,000 is an amazing contribution to a fund that is going to help so many people. … To have over $800,000 come in from individuals all across our state and from great companies like Nucor Steel goes back to the heart of South Carolina – it’s who we are at our core, and it’s neighbors helping neighbors.”

Established to assist South Carolinians recovering from natural disasters, One SC’s first project was providing relief and recovery assistance to South Carolinians in the aftermath of last year’s flood. Thanks to its donors, One SC has distributed nearly $2,000,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations supporting flood recovery projects across SC and helped approximately 1,500 families return home.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, Governor Haley expanded the fundraising efforts of One SC to help those impacted by the storm. Since that time, One SC has raised over $800,000.

Nucor Corporation is the largest steel producer in the United States and has four divisions in South Carolina, employing more than 2,000 people in high-quality manufacturing jobs.
