Southern Baptist Disaster Relief fund is one of the largest organizations providing meals, big trucks that have laundry resources, chainsaw gangs to clear debris, and other services.  Those people are devoted to what they do.

In church today the pastor announced that the Episcopal church has set up a fund and you can donate online. The church will absorb the admin. costs so all the money will go to the victims. We decided that was our best way to donate.

Red Cross and any and all local churches or animal shelters.  Our local churches provided much needed help during our flooding. 

 

Contact their fire/police stations also.  They can tell you of local helpers for areas most in need.  

 

Thank you for reaching out.

I sent a check to the American Red Cross specifying I wanted my donation to go to the Hurricane Florence relief fund. I downloaded a form, filled it out and sent the check. I also heard they are looking for donations for pet food and supplies that will go to a warehouse in Atlanta, I'm not sure where to drop off donations ( it was a pet supply store).
