Red Cross volunteers helping out with Florence disaster relief

Google to Match up to $1 Million in Donations to the American Red Cross During Hurricane Florence

Every disaster relief effort is different, Dunder said, and she's been happy to play her part.

The Red Cross Relief Doughnut is a strawberry shortcake donut, made with local strawberries from Hurricane Creek Farms, topped with vanilla icing.

HOW YOU CAN HELP The Red Cross has launched a massive response to this disaster and depends on financial donations to be able to provide disaster relief immediately.

Dozens of volunteers from the Hudson Valley are in the areas affected by Florence to help people regroup and recover.

If you are interested in learning more about volunteering with the Red Cross, the North Alabama chapter of the Red Cross is hosting "Learn and Serve" sessions.




Andrews said he will go to Raleigh, North Carolina, and then will find out where he will go. Volunteer mental health and health services professionals have provided some 5,500 contacts to provide support and care to evacuees. More than 6,700 people spent Wednesday night in 127 Red Cross and community shelters in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, the Red Cross said.

Resources and volunteers are now being deployed to help with recovery efforts in the Carolinas.

More than 1,500 disaster workers are on the ground to help and additional volunteers are being mobilized if needed. Check the charitable organization to which you are considering donating goods to verify its policies. "So our numbers should increase for people who didn't possibly evacuate, so we're increasing those numbers by about 30 percent".

Right now donations are a great start in helping Florence victims and the volunteers aiding those in need. Williams says you don't need a special skill-just the willingness to help.

The volunteers have been driving emergency response vehicles, operating shelters and distributing food and supplies, among other things, Williams said.
