10 Organizations Helping The Carolinas After Hurricane Florence

By Kristin Hunt

Last week, Hurricane Florence hit the East Coast, bringing catastrophic flooding to North and South Carolina. CBS reports that at least 25 people have died and 500,000 homes or businesses are without power — and the rain has not completely receded yet. But many organizations are helping residents weathering the storm with medicine, food, shelter, and rescue teams for families and their pets. You can support their work by donating money or supplies. Here's a little more info on 10 of them:

Americares

In times of natural disaster or crisis, Americares deploys emergency response teams to provide medicine, medical supplies, and other health services on the ground. The Hurricane Florence team arrived in North Carolina last week, and has been coordinating with local health clinics to treat sick or injured residents ever since. You can support this work by donating to Americares online.
