The nonprofit Palmetto Palace announced Tuesday it will raise funds in Pinckney’s name to build a $290,000 mobile hospital unit. The bus will provide preventive health care services in Allendale, Beaufort, Charleston, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties.

Pinckney, before his death in the Emanuel AME church massacre, represented those counties in the state Legislature.
