Hurricane Matthew Relief – Donations

Hi all. I don’t know why I didn’t think to do this before, but as you know, a couple of weeks ago Hurricane Matthew made its way up the east coast. It caused a LOT of damage and flooding to southeastern North Carolina, specifically Robeson County and surrounding areas including Pembroke, Lumberton, Goldsboro, and Fayettville.

For those who don’t know, Robeson County is the poorest county in NC. The people there didn’t have much to begin with and they most certainly don’t have flood insurance to replace what they’ve lost. My wife and I took down 2 truckloads and 1 5×8 trailer load of clothing, food, water, toiletries, diapers, formula, books, shoes, coats, and anything else that we could gather from our local community to the distribution centers in Lumberton to aid these people who need help. And they need whatever they can get.

In an effort to help as much as we could, not only did we get those donations of necessities, but we also raised $1,000 through PayPal by contacting our employers and community to help in any way they could.

This post is to ask that if anyone reads this that can help these people, please do so. Below is the name and address of the organization to which we gave the monetary donations and the clothing etc. I am also leaving links to two other non-profits in addition so you can choose to whom you would like to aid. Feel free to comment below if you helped out!! Thank you all so very much for reading and caring!
