Challenge

According to FEMA there are over 139,813 people who are still feeling the effects of Hurricane Florence. The largest needs for this group are housing , shelter, food, deposit assistance and refurnishing lost items. Homes and schools were submerged for an extended period of time. There are pockets of affected schools in low income areas that are in need of school supplies and and the replacement of damaged books and learning equipment.

Solution

Greene Lamp will be able to assist Hurricane Florence survivors restore balance to their lives by providing adequate assistance with rent and utility deposit, energy efficient appliances and food. The project will also allow us to fully stock 2 or three libraries with laptops, tablets and updated books.

Long-Term Impact

Majority of the schools now uses technology to learn. This way the teacher can assign and grade work simultaneously. Low income families are unable to bounce back as quickly after such a catastrophic event ,due to lack of resources. This project will assist almost 400 students with a proper library/STEM lab equipment
