Challenge

About half a million people remain without power in North and South Carolina, according to the latest situation report from the DOE. There are widespread power outages and in some locations power may be out for weeks rather than days.

Solution

We anticipate providing emergency cash aid to families so that they can purchase what they need most.

Long-Term Impact

Following natural disasters, we often collaborate with other organizations and local governments to meet the immediate needs of those most affected and lay the groundwork for lasting transformation.
