COLUMBIA, S.C. – Governor Henry McMaster was joined today by UnitedHealth Group executives and Joanne Turnquist of the Central Carolina Community Foundation to celebrate UnitedHealth Group’s $500,000 donation to the One SC Fund.

"This is the worst of times for many of our friends and families in the Pee Dee, so it's always wonderful when people and companies like the UnitedHealth Group come forward to help," said Gov. Henry McMaster.
“We're deeply concerned about the impact to South Carolina, and we are committed to helping rebuild the state,” said Garland Scott, CEO of UnitedHealthcare of the Carolinas and Georgia. “We hope other individuals and businesses will consider donating to the One SC Fund and the rebuilding process. I really want to thank the leadership of Governor McMaster and the whole team that is working so hard on behalf of South Carolinians.”
The One SC Fund was created by former Governor Nikki Haley in the aftermath of the historic flooding of 2015 and has helped with the recovery with Hurricane Matthew and now Hurricane Florence.
Since November of 2015, the One SC Fund has distributed over $3.4 million and has provided food and clothing to over 19,600 people and has helped 1633 families return home.
