SOCASTEE, SC (WBTW) – Athletes from Socastee High School helped clean up storm damage in the Rosewood neighborhood Thursday.

The neighborhood is located along the Intercoastal Waterway and most of the homes were flooded.

Head football coach Doug Illing said it served as a teaching lesson on giving back to the community that supports them.

“We got a great principal that’s giving us the opportunity to use this as a teaching lesson and you know try to give back to the community that supports us so much and in so many different ways,” Coach Illing said.

“We got a lot of guys out here just helping out with the flood victims, offering any help we can going door to door just seeing if anybody needs help moving stuff, get stuff out of their house, cleaning up, stuff like that,” student Jacob Necessary said.
