Adopt a Hurricane Florence Community

Hurricane Florence Urgent Support Actions

Adopt a Hurricane Florence Community

Last year, our networks raised over $10,000 in DIRECT SUPPORT for impacted peoples effected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria before and after the storms hit. This year, as Hurricane Florence is about to hit the Carolinas, must be just as prepared.

Coalition member and Dancing for Justice founder Brittany Williams is, again, tirelessly organizing food, money and supplies for Black and Brown folks in the Carolinas. Through her direct networks, we are distributing funds and supplies directly to families in need BEFORE DISASTER STRIKES. #BuildMaroonage


URGENT ASKS: LOCALS ONLY

We need people who are nearby the impacted areas to show up right now. View this mini-toolkit on Google Drive to prepare or download here, then sign up here if you can assist in direct support, including rescue and relief in the Carolinas.

  2. Donate to the GoFundMe 2018 Direct Support Fund. All monies go directly to impacted peoples in the Carolinas to prepare for recovery and impact. This can include gas, food, etc.

  3. We created Amazon Wish Lists for SIX communities in North and South Carolina. If you have an Amazon Prime membership, please send much-needed supplies ASAP before UPS, FedEx and USPS stop delivering to the areas. Preparation saves lives. Adopt a Carolina community directly through one of our Amazon Wishlists!
