7 easy ways you can help families devastated by Hurricane Florence


September 16, 2018

Hurricane Florence made landfall on Friday, September 14 impacting thousands of families along the east coast of the US - mainly the Carolinas and other neighboring states. To date, 15 people have died and roughly 950,000 people are without power. Additionally, many have lost their homes and access to basic needs like clean water.

If you're like me, watching the devastation on TV can make you feel helpless. So I compiled a list of non-profits (in no particular order) that are sending aid and support to the area for families in need.  Please note that all charities listed below have either a "Good" or "Exceptional" Charity Navigator Grade so you can feel confident that what you give goes to where it's needed most.

One thing to keep in mind... sending money is almost always the most efficient way to help in a disaster, according to the Center for International Disaster Information. When physical goods are donated, volunteers waste valuable time sorting through a mountain of items that may, or may not serve people’s immediate needs.
