Get help, give help: Recovering after Hurricane Florence (1408 hits)

North Carolina's long Atlantic coast has a history of weathering and withstanding hurricanes, but high winds and storm surge can do damage even inland when the conditions are right. After the storm, it is natural to want to help our neighbors. Whether you need help or want to give help, this is your guide.




DONATE TO HELP OTHERS

WRAL will host a phone bank Wednesday night from 4 to 7 p.m. to accept donations for Hurricane Florence relief. Callers may designate financial donations to any of our charitable partners: Red Cross, Salvation Army, NC Disaster Relief Fund and Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC.



Donations – by credit card, check or cash – are always the most efficient way to make sure that relief agencies on the scene of a crisis are able to purchase and distribute any necessary items.

The American Red Cross has 800 volunteers in locations throughout the state, and they’ve got 100 shelters open that are serving 10,000 people. Your Red Cross donations support those relief efforts.







The N.C. Disaster Relief Fund is currently accepting contributions for Hurricane Florence damage. Contributions are distributed by the United Way of North Carolina and directly help Hurricane Florence victims.

If you are unable to give online, you may mail your contribution to:
North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund
20312 Mail Service Center
Raleigh, NC 27699

To contribute to the Salvation Army’s Florence disaster relief efforts, visit www.HelpSalvationArmy.org or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY.

The Salvation Army does not place an administrative fee on disaster donations. During emergency disasters, 100 percent of designated gifts are used to support specific relief efforts.

North Carolina Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund was activated Thursday to support recovery efforts related to Hurricane Florence in North Carolina.

The N.C. Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund will support nonprofits with programs that help hurricane victims in our state. All funds raised for the NCCF Disaster Relief Fund will go directly to nonprofit organizations serving the needs of local individuals and communities in the impacted areas of North Carolina. No portion of the funds raised will be used for the Foundation's administrative or operational expenses. The Foundation will also encourage this practice among local recipient agencies.

Donations can be made online through the NCCF website at nccommunityfoundation.org via the "Give Now" button.
