Parts of North Carolina and South Carolina are still reeling in the weeks after Hurricane Florence.  If you are interested in helping out those communities, here are some ways to do so:

World Central Kitchen:  this is one of my favorite charities.  They provide meals to those in need—and have a stellar record of helping in the aftermath of disasters (they’ve served 3.6 million meals in Puerto Rico since last year!)


American Red Cross:  The Red Cross is known for helping people and responding to disasters.  https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-florence-donations.html/
