Hurricane Florence Relief Efforts
Hurricane Florence is pummeling the Carolinas with strong winds, heavy rain and dangerous tidal surges, destroying buildings and lives. The Red Cross is providing safe shelter and comfort for evacuees across six states. More than 20,000 people have sought refuge in more than 200 Red Cross and community shelters to escape the storm’s wrath. Several members of ICSAVE are presently deployed assisting with disaster relief efforts and, given the magnitude of these events, recognize the need is greater than ever before. For those not directly affected by this tragedy, we encourage you to give to the relief effort.
The Red Cross depends on financial donations to provide disaster relief. You can help people affected by Hurricane Florence by visiting redcross.org, calling 1- 800-RED CROSS or texting the word FLORENCE to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Donors can designate their donation to Hurricane Florence relief efforts by choosing that option when donating on redcross.org or on 1-800-RED CROSS.
The best way to ensure your donation will go to a specific disaster is to write the specific event name in the memo line of a check. We also recommend completing and mailing the donation form on redcross.org with your check. To the brave men, women and children affected by this calamity, you are in our thoughts and prayers. From our ICSAVE Family to yours, we will NEVER forget you nor ever leave you BEHIND!
