Want to help with Hurricane Florence relief efforts but not quite sure where to start?
We Wilm Rebuild is a grassroots, UNCW student run program started in the wake of Florence. Their collection drives have popped up all over the state. Check out their new website, donated by a website designer in Greensboro or follow their instagram @wewilmrebuild to stay up to date on relief efforts.
Low on Funds? The American Red Cross is the perfect option!
"The Red Cross encourages eligible donors in parts of the country unaffected by the storm to give blood or platelets to help ensure a sufficient blood supply. Platelet and type O positive blood donations are critically needed right now.
The Red Cross must collect 13,000 blood donations each day, to ensure patient needs are met at approximately 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. Appointments can be made by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)."
Don't forget the animals!

"Before Hurricane Florence hit the east coast, the American Humane Rescue Team had already jumped into action evacuating shelter cats in the path of the approaching storm and transporting them nearly 800 miles to safe, dry ground. When the storm made landfall, our team mobilized again, sending two emergency rescue vehicles loaded with boats, medical supplies, and tactical rescue equipment to North Carolina."
The funds that Mindful Supply has collected for Hurricane Florence relief continue to go toward supplies that we have donated to We Wilm Rebuild (Mentioned above) If you want help finding places to donate, give us a call at 336-763-0073 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
