Hurricane Florence: How to Help Those in Need
There are several organizations and ways to aid victims of Hurricane Florence.
More than one million people have been told to leave their homes to get out of Hurricane Florence's way.
As heavy winds, waves and rain pelted North Carolina Friday, residents faced power outage and rising water. Many called 911 to be rescued from their swamped homes.
For those looking to help, there are many groups and non-profit organizations helping the afflicted. Here are several sources of aid:
The Red Cross: You can donate $10 simply by texting "FLORENCE" to 90999.
Facebook has a safety check page here.
Frank's Nation: The pet organization has launched a campaign to cover the expenses of volunteers searching for lost dogs in the affected areas. The nonprofit is named after a bulldog named Frank that was lost in Hurricane Harvey.
Task Force 75: This is a volunteer disaster response team made up of military veterans. The group provides rescue services for people and animals, first aid treatment and humanitarian assistance. They have a GoFundMe page for donations to cover expenses here.
The North Carolina Community Foundation supports local nonprofits throughout the state and is funding Hurricane Florence efforts along the coast. Donations can be made here.
