First a hurricane, then a tropical storm, and finally a post-tropical cyclone, Florence devastated the southeast coast.
Hurricane Florence made landfall on Friday, September 14 and pummeled the southeast coast with over 35 inches of rain. The rainfall since Florence arrived totals over 8 trillion gallons so far. The storm has already taken the lives of at least 42 people in the Carolinas and Virginia. Thousands of people and pets are still recovering from the flood damage that Hurricane Florence unleashed. Full recovery will take some time, and GreaterGood is determined to help along the way.
Because of your donations, we sent food, medical supplies, and cash to help those affected by the storm, but there is still so much work left to do. Our response is vital to ensure the safety and recovery of the pets and people on the ground. Your support makes it possible.
100% of your tax-deductible donation goes to pets and people who are affected by Florence, and we will keep you updated on the progress of your efforts.
