Hurricane Florence made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, on Friday morning with 90+ mph winds. Moving at a menacingly slow pace, Hurricane Florence is expected to dump 20-40 inches of rain over the Carolinas and mirror conditions that caused massive flooding in Texas after Hurricane Harvey. Several of GlobalGiving’s local nonprofit partners are preparing to respond and have asked us to help fund any necessary relief and recovery efforts on the ground.
The projects below, as part of GlobalGiving’s Hurricane Florence Relief Fund, will provide emergency funding to locally driven relief efforts, providing food, medicine, and other essential supplies to help people impacted by the storm.
We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.
