Lowcountry businessman asks for help raising supplies for flood victims


Bobby Cummings, the owner of Cummings Wealth Management, is collecting supplies he can donate to those impacted by severe floodwaters.

Cummings says helping people is something he loves to do:

"I help people for a living, that's what I do as a financial adviser, and philanthropic stuff. But I have to tell you, nothing has been more rewarding than this. Hand delivering food to someone who is hungry is just a whole new level for me, so this is just awesome."

The staff at the management company has been helping Cummings collect and donate the supplies.

Last week, the team delivered supplies to people in Lumberton and Wilmington, North Carolina. Residents in those areas have experienced some of the worst flooding caused by Florence.

Now, the company on 1275 Ben Sawyer Blvd. in Mount Pleasant has been transformed into a designated supply drop-off point.

"It is not over. For a lot of people up there, the worst is really yet to come. We really want people to not forget the people up there, and keep giving. We are all children of God, and we got to come together and help each other in times like this. We should do it all the time."

Cummings and his staff will be collecting non-perishable goods and cleaning supplies from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. through the end of next week.
