WYFF News 4 viewers come through to help those in need after report

After a report Tuesday on WYFF News 4, viewers have shown generosity and kindness to those in need in the Upstate.

News 4’s Mike McCormick spotlighted some of the Upstate organizations that are providing food, shelter and other needs for those enduring the extreme cold.


Those who visit the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen get a cup of hot chocolate with their meal, and they can also take socks, a hat, gloves or a jacket when they leave, depending on what’s been donated.

The soup kitchen has been in need of donations of winter clothing and accessories, especially plus-sized jackets.

“If one person does not make it because of this weather, it’s going to be one person too many,” Lou Sartor, executive director of the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen, said. “With this weather that we’re going to be having for two consecutive weeks, it’s going to be more than any of us can withstand.”

On Thursday, following Mike’s report, Sartor posted on Facebook: “News from the kitchen. A special thank you to Mike McCormick and News 4 for alerting the community of our needs for our guests. A wonderful lady just left with over thirty blankets. She stated that she and her husband went to Dillard’s and Dillard’s gave them a discount when they realized that the blankets would be for those that are homeless and others that need additional blankets to stay warm in their homes.

“Also, a special thank you to those that came from Greenville, Landrum and the surrounding area with gloves, hats, scarves and blankets. We will ‘weather’ this storm together for our neighbors.”
