Relief for Hurricane Florence (2709 hits)

Highly-rated charities providing aid and support in the Carolinas


Hurricane Florence made landfall as a strong Category 1 storm in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, on September 14. Ahead of the storm, the North and South Carolina coasts were issued mandatory evacuation orders and more than one million people were told to leave their homes. Meteorologists warned of the potential for "life-threatening storm surge and rainfall" in the hours and days following the hurricane's landfall.



Hurricane Florence was eventually downgraded to a tropical depression as it moved north out of the Carolinas. The storm packed record rainfall which led to flooding along many of North Carolina's major rivers. Officials are waiting for the floodwaters to stop rising before they begin assessing the damage caused by Florence. Many families are waiting to return their homes and tens of thousands of people are still without power.



Charity Navigator continues to update the following list of highly-rated organizations that are responding in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Organizations like the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, the Charleston Animal Society, and All Hands and Hearts Smart Response, along with a number of others, are providing assistance to families, animals, and communities affected by the storm.



Donors can designate their donations to the cause on the organizationsí websites respectively, or use Charity Navigatorís Giving Basket to complete their donations. Please note, at this time it is not certain that all of these organizations will spend 100% of donations received on Hurricane Florence relief.*



You can find more information about inclusion on this list by visiting our 'How Can My Charity Be Added To This List?' page.
