As an organization we understand and believe that there are needs beyond our own city. For most of the country it feels like Hurricane Matthew is gone, but for the eastern part of our state, which includes some of the most economically challenged areas of our country, it’s only getting worse as the floodwaters in rivers continue to rise.
Currently there are 300,000 people still without power, there have been 19 deaths in our state, and hundreds have had to be rescued by helicopter. 66 counties in North and South Carolina have been declared Federal Disaster areas. The hurricane also caused terrible devastation internationally in Haiti and the Bahamas. Many have lost their homes and have nowhere to return to.
As we have for past disasters, Project 658 has partnered with the organization Samaritan’s Purse to mobilize funding for flooding and hurricane relief efforts. To make a donation to this fund click on the button below select “Give Here. Help There. Hurricane Relief” from the drop down menu.
