CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Lowcountry officials are joining with a nonprofit group based in California urging residents to provide relief for children and families affected by the Ebola outbreak in Liberia.

Charleston Mayor Joe Riley is joining with state Rep. Wendell Gaillard and the president and founder of the organization known as Save More Kids on Wednesday to discuss the effort.

During a Charleston news conference, they are to discuss efforts to fill three shipping containers with rice, water and over-the-counter medicines to ship to Christ Children’s Home orphanage and surrounding communities in Liberia.

They are also to discuss how people can contribute as well as arrangements for getting the supplies to Africa.
