1/18/2020 Hurricane Florence Update
As of today, all big feeding kitchens have closed. At one time, we had 10 large kitchens providing food to Florence survivors at 10 different locations. A total of 1,057,623 HOT meals were prepared and served from these 10 kitchens. We are still feeding recovery volunteers.
Hurricane Florence is the most devastating natural disaster that North Carolina has ever experienced (approximately 100,000 homes affected). We currently have a total of 6 sites that have rebuild operations working out of them (at one time we had 14 different sites). So far, over 5800 recovery jobs have been completed. We are doing home rebuilds. You do not need to be trained to help! We are so thankful for those who have come to help us!
Long Term Response
This disaster is so big that it will require a long term rebuild response to help get many people back in their homes. We are setting up four different large rebuild center sites where we can house and feed many volunteers who will be working on homes. We plan to manage the rebuilding of homes from these “rebuilding hubs”. This will be a long term response that will take 2-3 years and require thousands of volunteers to help get many people back in their homes.
Cost: We are asking for a suggested donation of $10 per person per day, which will help cover your meals (3 meals per day), lodging and insurance. We understand that you are volunteering your time to help many people effected by Hurricane Florence. For more information about this suggested donation please contact Tom Beam at 800.395.5102, ext. 5626 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for Praying, Giving and Going!
