How to help those affected by Hurricane Florence

Florence -- which began as a powerful Category 4 hurricane -- continues to devastate communities.

If you're looking to make a difference, here's how you can help those impacted by the storm.

DONATE

FEMA says cash donations offer the most flexibility for charities and nonprofits to address urgent needs. People are urged to not donate unsolicited goods such as used clothing, miscellaneous household items, medicine or perishable foodstuffs at this time to avoid drawing away valuable volunteer labor, transportation and warehouse space.

Charity Navigator has compiled a list of highly-rated organizations planning to respond in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Florence. These organizations will provide assistance to the communities affected by the storm.

General Aid and Relief

Financial Aid for Families

Food and Hunger Relief

Housing and Shelter

Animal Care

Those interested in donating can also support the official GoFundMe Hurricane Florence Relief fund here. GoFundMe has also curated a hub that includes verified campaigns and individual fundraisers for victims.

VOLUNTEER

FEMA urges those wishing to volunteer to not self-deploy, as it could negatively impact first responders and their missions. Potential volunteers are asked to register with a voluntary or charitable organization. FEMA also notes that there will be volunteer needs for many months after the disaster, so those wishing to help should sign up now.
