How To Help Those Impacted By Florence

Hurricane Florence has begun its assault on the Carolinas. Non-profits have already arrived, helping with shelters and positioning supplies and personnel to provide support for those in need. Additionally, other groups and individuals are also responding, and are reaching out for support through crowdfunding sites. So, we thought we’d update you a bit on some ways you can assist, too…

GoFundMe has verified this campaign for Task Force 75, a team of veterans that have brought boats and supplies to Wilmington, North Carolina to help with search and rescue operations for both people and animals.

As you might expect, Hurricane Florence has also already impacted the blood supply in the region, as more than 120 blood drives have been canceled in Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. That’s obviously going to lead to shortages further on down the road. So, if you wanna help in that way, you can find updated locations here in the DMV to give blood through the AABB, America’s Blood Centers, American Red Cross and the Armed Services Blood Program
